By default, everything is downloaded. On C drive of your computer. Usually that’s not convenient. Because on a lot of computers, this is an SSD hard drive. And these are often a lot smaller than an old-fashioned hard drive. This is nice for Windows. Because this works a lot faster.

But there is no need to save your downloads here. It doesn’t get any faster because of this. An old-fashioned hard drive is much more convenient, for your downloads. Because you often have much more space at your disposal.

Go to Grabit, go to Edit. And then Preferences.
