    When doing "Save as Spreadsheet" it suddenly is making me select a location on my computer to physically save it? I have never had to do this in the years that I have been using this! Typically I would hit "Save as Spreadsheet" and it would just appear as a download NOT making me prompt for a location. This has become a pain? How can I fix this and change it back?

    I would check the browser settings. QuickBase just allows you to download a file and then lets the browser take control over how and where it should get saved and so on.

    I would be looking for the download settings. Generally the default settings would be to automatically download it to your downloads folder. One can change that folder or to have the browser ask each time. Hope that helps.
