Set download directory

Configures the directory that Google Chrome will use for downloading files.

If you set this policy, Google Chrome will use the provided directory regardless of whether the user has specified one or enabled the flag to be prompted for download location every time.

See https://www.chromium.org/administrators/policy-list-3/user-data-directory-variables for a list of variables that can be used.

If this policy is left not set the default download directory will be used and the user will be able to change it.
