UI Flow Set Download Location

 Hi All.

Im using UI Flows to login to a vendors legacy portal and download some ZIP files. It does this well however I dont want it to automatically download to my Downloads folder, I want to set it to download to a specific location, eg a specific onedrive folder so i can then use that to trigger a flow to process these files. The UI Flow is using Chrome. I have found some posts about using a webdriver in chrome but im a bit out of my depth there.


Anyone able to help or point me in the right direction on this?

I believe that Download locations are inherited from the browser so the only way to change the location of where files are downloaded is by changing your browser settings. I don't believe its possible to change download locations based just off of the type of file or the location you are downloading from. Unless this webdriver you are referring to might be able to help with that.

Old post however here's how I find the download folder using Power Automate Desktop. I Hope it helps someone:

1. Actions > Folder > Get Special Folder - set "Special Folder Name" as "Documents" -> save into variable (%downloadsFolder%)

2. Actions > Text > Replace Text >

   set "Text to parse" as %downloadsFolder% ,

   set "Text to find" as "Documents",

   set "Replace with" as "Downloads"

Then to access a file in the downloads folder use:  File path: %downloadsFolder%\FileNameGoesHere.doc
