How to change the download folder on a BlackBerry Tour

The download folder is where any files or applications that you download onto your BlackBerry Tour are stored temporarily, until you move them somewhere else. By default, files are saved in the Downloads folder (found in your Home folder) but you can change the download destination to another folder of your choice.


Instructions

Step 1

Go to the Home folder

From the BlackBerry’s main screen, press the BlackBerry button (the button directly to the left of the trackball). The Home folder with all of its sub-folders will appear.

Step 2

Go to the Home Screen Preferences page

While in the Home folder, press the BlackBerry button again to bring up the menu. Scroll down to Options and select it by pressing the trackball. The Home Screen Preferences page will be displayed.

Step 3

Choose a new download folder

On the Home Screen Preferences page, scroll down to Download Folder. Press the trackball to bring up the list of folders, and scroll down until the folder that you want to use is highlighted. Press the trackball again to choose that folder.

Step 4

Confirm the change

A confirmation window will appear, asking if you’re sure you want to change your download folder. Select Save to make the change. You’ll be returned to the Home Screen Preferences page, with the new download destination folder displayed under Download Folder.

Step 5

Exit back to the main screen

Press the back button (to the right of the trackball) to exit back to the Home folder, and press the back button again to exit back to the BlackBerry’s main screen.
