Issues Downloading Files with Google Chrome Browser

Google Chrome Browser has trouble saving files from the internet to certain folders on lab and podium machines.  Because of this, you might experience an unusual delay when you download files using Chrome.  You have a few options in dealing with this:

  • Wait for the download to finish.  Even for small files, though, this may take a few minutes.
  • Accept the default download location (C:\Temp) and then move your downloaded file(s) to one of your own folders to preserve it/them (such as Downloads, Desktop, Documents, H:\, etc...).
  • Explicitly choose your H:\ drive as the download location.  You can also choose any folder in your H: drive, such as H:\Downloads.
