I found the following link and tried it to set the Downloadfolder to Downloads in my Homefolder.

But when I download something, it goes somewhere to ...\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\


For regular files that works as expected. But when I download a zip File as in from the download link in the red box, the download goes to ...\Temporary Internet Files\
