Rename Downloaded Files Inside Chrome

Posted on

Problem :

I’m using Google Chrome Version 48.0.2564.116 (64-bit) on OS X El-Capitan version 10.11.3 (15D21), and happen to download a lot of files everyday.

Now, once I download them from source A, I need to rename some of them and upload them to destination B.

Problem is – I have to go into the download folder, change the file name, and then upload it each and every time.

Is there a way to rename files inside the browser (inside the little bar that opens in the bottom when you download a file) without enabling the “rename after download” feature?

Solution :

Go to chrome settings (you may type in address bar chrome://settings/)

Search ask where on the right hand box

Tick the option Ask where to save each file before downloading

Next time when you download the file, you can edit the file name if needed
