Asa or anyone elese, does this function behave this way intentionally, by design?
If this gets reworked... should it refocus the downloaded file like it does when you first open the folder, or should it leave it alone? I'd say I go for the latter, unobtrusive alternative.
I have mixed feelings on this one. Sometimes when I have a folder already open, I prefer a new window anyways because I may want to keep a folder window on the directory I've chosen and go off and do something different that involves changing directories with the new. I keep certain compilers as C:\CompilerName\CompilerName, where a compressed file involving that compiler is downloaded into C:\CompilerName and extracted into C:\CompilerName\CompressedFilename. Sometimes I want a window that stays at C:\CompilerName while another window starts at C:\CompilerName and eventually gets changed to C:\CompilerName\CompressedFilename. If this gets implemented, it should be a toggleable feature.
