Automatically start magnet link w/o prompt to save?


Recommended Posts

When I click on a magnet link, uTorrent launches just like it is supposed to and when it launches, it prompts me to save the file or files.

Is there a way to turn off this prompt and just start the download by saving the file or folder to a default location, "~/Downloads/"? I always save the torrents there anyway and move them to another directory as necessary.

If not, it's no big deal, but if there is a way I'd really prefer that option.

Thanks a ton!

Sorry to bring up old posts but I would also like an answer to this...


The issue isn't with my browser launching uTorrent (it does that fine), the issue is with how uTorrent handles the magnet link that is sent to it i.e. it prompts to confirm the save location. 


I would like to know if it is possible to have uTorrent bypass this prompt and just automatically start downloading to the default location. I know this option is available on the Windows release but I can't seem to find it on the Mac version.
