How to Change my Browser Settings to Name Files as I Save Them

Each web browser can be configured to replicate the Save As functionality. Please take note that the new configuration will affect any file it downloads. Below you’ll find instructions for each modern web browser:


Google Chrome

  • Click on the icon on the top right corner and choose Settings from the dropdown list.



  • Open the Downloads section.
  • Toggle the switch next to Ask where to save each file before downloading.


Google Chrome will then be updated to open a Browse Window each time a file is downloaded.


Mozilla Firefox

  • Click on the icon in the top right corner and choose Settings.



  • Then check the box next to Always ask you where to save files.


Firefox will now open a Browse Window as you download files.


Microsoft Edge

At this time there is no way to configure Microsoft Edge to ask you about saving a file. Once this becomes available we will update this section. All files will download to the Downloads folder on your computer.


Internet Explorer

Whenever you download a file the following bar will appear at the bottom of the window to confirm how you would like to interact with the file. This is the default of Internet Explorer, so there is no need to go into the settings.

Click on the arrow next to Save. Then choose Save As with each file you download.




To change the default download location of your Safari browser.

Click on the "Edit Menu" > Preferences > General tab.

Locate the "Save downloaded files to" section, Click on "Downloads" > "Other"...

Browse and indicate your new download location.


We have two additional modules. The OCR module allows you to recognize and edit text within any scanned document or image. We also have the E-Sign module that allows you to electronically sign PDFs and track and manage e-signatures in real-time. If those modules are not available for you, you can purchase them here.
