Where is the "Save as" option when I choose direct download?

New member | Level 2

For some reason the direct download option has changed. When I choose direct download there  is no bottom bar that gives me the "save as" option for the file.  I have to go to the downloads folder on the computer, rename the file, and move it to the proper folder. Why would this have changed? How can I change it back?

That's controlled by your web browser; not Dropbox. The Dropbox website simply tells your browser to download a file. It's the browser that gives you the options for Save, Save As, etc.
