how to change file download location in Webdriver while using chrome driver/firefox driver

I am trying to save an image by using save as option inside a specific folder. I found a way by which i am able to right click on the image which i want to save using save as option. But the problem where i am stuck is after getting the os window which asks where to save the file i am not able to send the desired location because i don't know how to do it. I went through the similar questions asked on this forum but non of them helped so far.

Code is-

For Firefox-

public class practice {

public void pic() throws AWTException{
WebDriver driver;

//Proxy Setting
FirefoxProfile profile = new FirefoxProfile();
profile.setAssumeUntrustedCertificateIssuer(false);
profile.setEnableNativeEvents(false);
profile.setPreference("network.proxy.type", 1);
profile.setPreference("network.proxy.http", "localHost");
profile.setPreference("newtwork.proxy.http_port",3128);

//Download setting
profile.setPreference("browser.download.folderlist", 2);
profile.setPreference("browser.helperapps.neverAsk.saveToDisk","jpeg");
profile.setPreference("browser.download.dir", "C:\\Users\\Admin\\Desktop\\ScreenShot\\pic.jpeg");
driver = new FirefoxDriver(profile);

driver.navigate().to("http://stackoverflow.com/users/2675355/shantanu");
driver.findElement(By.xpath("//*[@id='large-user-info']/div[1]/div[1]/a/div/img"));
Actions action = new Actions(driver);
action.moveToElement(driver.findElement(By.xpath("//*[@id='large-user-info']/div[1]/div[1]/a/div/img"))).perform();
action.contextClick().perform();
Robot robo = new Robot();
robo.keyPress(KeyEvent.VK_V);
robo.keyRelease(KeyEvent.VK_V);
// Here i am getting the os window but don't know how to send the desired location
}//method
}//class


For chrome-

public class practice {
public void s() throws AWTException{
WebDriver driver;
System.setProperty("webdriver.chrome.driver","C:\\Users\\Admin\\Desktop\\chromedriver.exe");
driver = new ChromeDriver();
driver.navigate().to("http://stackoverflow.com/users/2675355/shantanu");
driver.findElement(By.xpath("//*[@id='large-user-info']/div[1]/div[1]/a/div/img"));
Actions action = new Actions(driver);
action.moveToElement(driver.findElement(By.xpath("//*[@id='large-user-info']/div[1]/div[1]/a/div/img"))).perform();
action.contextClick().perform();
Robot robo = new Robot();
robo.keyPress(KeyEvent.VK_V);
robo.keyRelease(KeyEvent.VK_V);
// Here i am getting the os window but don't know how to send the desired location
}
}


This is the pop up window where i am stuck

Answer

There are two things that are going wrong in code.

For Firefox: You need to set

profile.setPreference("browser.download.dir", "C:\\Users\\Admin\\Desktop\\ScreenShot\\");

not to

profile.setPreference("browser.download.dir", "C:\\Users\\Admin\\Desktop\\ScreenShot\\pic.jpeg");

secondly, you are setting preference browser.download.folderlist, it is browser.download.folderList (L caps in folderList).

Once you have achieved this both, you can use then your Robot class to perform desired operations.

For Chromedriver try out with:

String downloadFilepath = "/path/to/download";
HashMap<String, Object> chromePrefs = new HashMap<String, Object>();
chromePrefs.put("profile.default_content_settings.popups", 0);
chromePrefs.put("download.default_directory", downloadFilepath);
ChromeOptions options = new ChromeOptions();
options.setExperimentalOption("prefs", chromePrefs);
DesiredCapabilities cap = DesiredCapabilities.chrome();
cap.setCapability(CapabilityType.ACCEPT_SSL_CERTS, true);
cap.setCapability(ChromeOptions.CAPABILITY, options);
WebDriver driver = new ChromeDriver(cap);

Hope this helps. :)
