How to Change UC Browser Android Download Folder Location

UC Browser is the most popular web browser on Android. While there are many free web browsers available on Android, none of them is as popular as UC. UC Browser excels in downloading files at a much faster rate, making it the most suitable option for video and audio downloads on Android. In the event of an interrupted internet connection during file downloads, UC Browser allows for easy resumption at any time.

Despite its advantages, many users may be unaware of several options available within UC Browser. Additionally, once a file is downloaded, locating its storage location can be challenging. Today, you will learn how to change the UC Browser download folder location and settings.

Change UC Android Web Browser Download Folder Location & Settings

  • First, start UC Browser on your Android smartphone.
  • Once it opens, tap on the menu.


  • A menu will appear on the screen; tap on Settings (Gear icon).


  • In the settings scroll-down list, tap on the “Download Settings” option.


  • Now, here you can change the Default download path, Max Download Tasks at a time, New Task, Auto Reconnect, and Notification-related settings.

(a) Default Path: With this option, you can change the file download folder/location. To make this change, click on the Default Path option.


By default, all files are downloaded in the SD card >> UCDownloads folder. Here you can select a different folder. Choose a new folder/location and tap on the OK button to save the new folder/location.


(b) Max Downloads: Here you can set how many files you want to download at a time. By default, it is set to 3, so you can choose this setting yourself.

(c) New Task: You can set the file download permission here between Always Ask and Download Directly. By default, it is set to Always Ask. So, when you start a download, it will ask you for permission. If you set up direct download, it will begin downloading files directly without any permission.

(d) Auto Reconnect- If the network connection is lost during file download and this option is turned on, it will automatically reconnect.

(e) Notification: If this option is turned on, a file download notification will appear on the notification bar. If this option is turned off, all files will be downloaded in the background.
