Chrome - Ask where to save files
Anyone here been able to globally set the setting on chrome for 'Ask where to save each file before downloading'? I've had a look through the ADMX and there aren't any settings for it. I've tried editing the master_preferences file as mentioned - Google Chrome vs IE - Looking for the "Open / Save / Cancel" options? but that didn't seem to work either.

The settings in the master_preferences file will only be read the first time a user opens the browser and doesn't already have a Chrome profile i.e. the entire %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome folder doesn't exist.

We do use mandatory profiles and the \Google\Chrome\User Data\Default didn't exist (I had deleted the entire google directory before). I remade them and added that Preferences files like you mentioned and it's working. Thanks very much.
