There is nothing really new about this behaviour in Google Chrome
(compared to other browsers). It only works in a better way (I think).
Chrome saves your data on your computer, but you don't really see it.
If you take a look in Chrome Options you can see the download location
under 'Advanced options' (or something like that, I use the Dutch
language). I changed my download location and want Chrome to ask me
where to store my downloaded files. So, on my computer it works
If you take a look on this download location, you can see
your where your spss-files are stored. You can see this also when you
click on the arrow in the box and choose for one of the options.

Quite by accident, whilst updating my website via Weebly and
simultaneously checking links via both Google and Google Chrome, I
noticed in Chrome a large arrow descending to bottom left of the screen
and leaving box(es) containing the name(s) of downloaded file(s)
including SPSS *.sav files. Clicking on one of these this opened the
SPSS file, even when SPSS was not currently open. I checked and
double-checked (closing and reopening everything, including Google and
Google Chrome) to make sure I wasn't dreaming, but it works!
means that (in Chrome only) users can now download and open SPSS files
in one step, without having to copy and save them. This is wonderful for
me as I don't now have to explain the steps need to access my files (and
for users who no longer need to fiddle about to open them).
how do I get rid of the irritating Google ads?
