Where do my Downloads go?

Even Chromebooks have a Downloads folder, which is the default saving location for downloads and screenshots. Downloads can be accessed via the File manager app (blue folder icon in your Apps) but here's a setting that everyone should apply:
  • In Chrome settings, scroll down to "Show advanced settings"
  • Scroll down more to find the Downloads section
  • Check the box for "Always ask"
With this box checked you will now be prompted to choose a location (eg. save directly to Drive) and (perhaps more useful) to rename the file before saving it. This can save you a lot of time when downloading images, PDFs, etc!
