I would like to download my some photos to my comp. When I click download it doesn’t ask where I want them to go and at present they take themselves to VLC photo viewer. This maybe a computer error. I wonder could you help

Regards Gail

Whether you are asked for a download location or not depends on your browser settings. If you use chrome:

  • Tap 3-dot menu, then settings
  • Advanced
  • Downloads
  • “All where to save files” turn it on

Re: Snapchat … Hopefully you meant Snapseed? 😃
