    Download directory is the location where the users save their downloaded files. For changing the download directory;
    • Navigate towards Menu
    • Select the ‘More’ tab
    • Choose the ‘Settings’ option
    • Click on the option denoted as ‘Privacy & Personal Data’
    • Finally tap on the option denoted as ‘Download Directory’ and change the location accordingly
    This is how download directory can be changed in Dolphin browser for android.

    Cool Re: What needs to be done to change the download directory in android?

    Hi.. I have 2 options..


    Options 1:


    Use Dolphin Browser HD it allows you to change download location


    Option 2:


    Move all your apps (except the desktop apps) to SD Card.


    You can do this by going to


    settings -> applications -> manage applications.


    Select the “All” option in top.


    Now select the menu hardware button (left of the home hardware key) and select "Sort by size".


    Now you will be able to see all the apps with biggest size on top. Select the biggest one and there will be an option called “move to SD card”. Select that and in a few seconds, the app will be moved to sd card. You can bring it back to device memory by following the same process.


    This is the most effective way of doing things.


    HOWEVER .... Changing the default location can sometimes result in unforeseen issues.


    pls do let me know whether that worked


    Thanks
