Whenever I download with Uget, The Default Download folder is $HOME (for my case /home/pandya).

I know I can change download destination at time as follows:


But I want to change it permanently so-that I don't need to change every time.
Where is setting or How to change?

  • okey, I did not know I had to do in this case. – Lety Jun 29 '14 at 13:56
  • but yours is good enough, I think you accept it, and everything is ok :) – Lety Jun 29 '14 at 13:59

From the official documentation:

  • Open property by right-click on Home


  • Change Folder location on Default for New Download


  • not only the default download location can be changed in this way, but also the number of connections and other settings – user47206 Dec 5 '14 at 20:44
  • I needed to relaunch my uGet for the new downloads to use the new location. I'm on Debian running uGet 2.0.8. – Sufian Jun 19 '19 at 9:13

Textual Walkthrough: (from our documentation)

  1. Right click the Home category in the uGet main window.
  2. Select "Properties".
  3. Click the 2nd tab at the top, "Default for new download 1".
  4. Change this setting to whatever location/folder you want to be the default for this category.

This feature and tutorial is not limited to just the Home category...this can be done with as many categories as you want to make allowing you to easily switch between many different default settings and folders.

    That doesn't explain why because the link contains screenshots on the tutorial page. If it was a link to some random page for traffic padding then fine but it is the official answer from the official website. It doesn't make sense for it to be downvoted. – Michael Tunnell Jul 18 '14 at 16:21
  • what do yo mean by "official answer"!? – Pandya Jul 18 '14 at 16:26
