how to set preferred download file?

Reported by: reklov_w Owned by:

since your page update I can not find any way to set the preferred download file which is displayed in the summary page. Is there a new way to change this?

It seems like the preferred download file displayed is dependent on the operating system the browser is run on (windows/linux).

Setting the download in the download button can be accomplished through the File Manager.

  1. Go to the Files page while logged in to access the File Manager
  2. From the File Manager navigate to the file you wish to populate that button
  3. Select the "i" icon for the file you wish to set as the default download
  4. On the bottom right check the boxes for the operating systems which you wish the file to be the default download for.
  5. Select save

That should then populate the download button with the file you selected. There may be up to a 5 minute delay before the button updates.

Ok, great, thanks!

Never saw this button ("i") up to now, there was always only the file statistics button visible.
