Specify download directory at the time of downloading - Safari

When I download something I used to save it to a relevant directory in my machine. When I moved to Mac and to Safari, one of the most inconvenient things I experienced was that Safari download everything to the download directory and I cannot choose the place at the time of downloading (Even though I can change the path from downloads directory to some other directory, it downloads everything to that and it was not the thing I was looking for)

After much trouble going through different sources finally found something reasonable. Since I saw that there are many more people out there with the same problem thought that it would be useful to share this simple tip (though the tip is simple, it was very useful to me + had to spend a considerable amount of time to find this out)

So simply if you need to specify the download directory at the time of downloading, without just clicking the link to download

Right click on link and choose ‘Download Linked File As…’

This will do the trick.
Hope this would make your life easier with Safari ☺
