Default Download directory can't be properly set

I have the download folder set to F:\ as can be seen in the attachment, yet the downloads continue to show up in:

C:\Users\admin\Downloads

Even though I don't have it pointing there. Is there some reason for this?

Thanks

downloads added prior to you changing this path will contain the old save path.
or are you having this issue with newly added links? if so are you using the addlinks dialog with a different save path?

So this is normal behavior? I have to go in and rightclick each file and change the path?

I don't remember ever changing it earlier.

Is C:\Users\admin\Downloads the default path when no path is given? Is that why they're going there?

I think the reason it happened was I had to replace a hard drive that had failed after so many years. Using the same F:\ drive avoided this from happening before.

I have 35 links in my queue. Anyway to reset and change the download path globally in one action instead of having to go down the list and change each one, one by one?

You only have to change the packages not the links.
In case all files are stored in same folder you can easily select all and change once.
