Remarks

This property specifies the folder which will be chosen in the Browse for folder dialog by default. It may be useful if you want to provide your users with possibility to download music files to MyMusic folder, image files to MyPictures, and etc.

Note

File Downloader behaves differently about this property in Internet Explorer and other browsers.

Being loaded in Internet Explorer File Downloader takes the value of the DefaultDestinationFolder property into account in the first launch after installation only. If a user has downloaded files to another folder, this folder will be chosen in the Browse for folder dialog in the next launch of File Downloader.

In non-Internet Explorer browsers only Desktop and My Documents folders are supported by the DefaultDestinationFolder property. Also the default folder will be chosen each time the Browse for folder dialog has been opened.
