index of downloaded files on browser


Hi, i'm using google chrome and when i want a downloaded file to be shown in folder, it redirects me to a index page of the same folder on my browser and it doesn't open any folder in my desktop. Also when i click to run a downloaded file, instead of running, it downloads the same file again. What is the problem here?

Go to the menu on Chrome (3 horizontal bars on the right side of the page) and select Save Page As .... It defaults to the Downloads folder of your home directory. You can navigate to another folder if you don't want to save the file to the Downloads folder. I'm confused that you say

. Why would you use your browser to run that file? What kind of file is it exactly?

When i click "Show in folder", it opens a html page in a new tab with my downloaded files displayed, but i don't want this...

About that quote, i realized it's nothing bad, i just forgot some downloads that were cancelled, retry to download again when i click on the files.

Sorry, I'm not following you. Where exactly do you find "Show in Folder". I don't see that in the Chrome menu.

Go to the Downloads page or type Ctrl+J and below each file, there are two options: one is "Show in folder" and the other is "Remove from the list". Is this what you have?

Ok! Now I follow you. I go to the Downloads item in the menu and it opens up a tab called "Downloads". There is a list of my downloaded files. Below each file are two optioons: Show in Folder (on the left) and Remove from List (on the right). If I click on Show in folder on one of the downloaded files it opens a file manager (in my case Konqueror) showing the contents of the folder in which file appears. Have you defined a default file manager for your system? Maybe you need to do that first.

No, maybe i need to define it. So why doesn't it show the file in desktop folder like it does on windows?
