    I moved this to the RAZR forum

    I don't know much about he Razr. But if you know where its storing stuff, you can find it & move it with a File Explorer from the Play Store: https://play.google.com/store/search?q=file explorer&c=apps . ES File explorer & Astro are popular. Also, if you have wifi, there are some apps there that let you transfer files to a pc

    I am in the same quandary. I want to set by default where the save goes, much like in Windows when you save a file, without having to move it later. This may not be an option but it should be. By the way, I am running Android 4.3.

    I do not believe there is any way to set the default location for downloads. They all go to the Downloads folder automatically. As CJM posted, with a file explorer it is easy to just transfer the downloaded files to another location for permanent storage.
