Where does Chrome store the last folder used to upload ?

Hello Experts,
Each time I use Chrome to upload files; Chrome opens an upload window pointing to the last folder used to upload.
and in each machine it remembers the last folder from which we uploaded from that station,...
This is cool!

where can I find the place, position where Chome stores the path of the last folder used to upload files ?

I am not referring to the download folder that we can change from settings.

this is the last upload folder used... Where is it stored ?
Regards!

I'm not certain but I think the operating system is doing that, not Chrome.  It works that way for all of the programs that I have.

Once you change it, Chrome uses that folder from that point forward. So it is just the Windows Folder you pointed it to. Is that working for you?

I'm not sure but check this address.

Chrome uses the Windows folder that has been set so the above would only be true if that is what the user set.

You can test it !

You need another User account. create another user account on your PC and switch into it.
Go toC:\Users\{username}\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data and rename  “Default” folder to “Default old“. (do this in second PC / user account )

now copy the Default folder from your original user account and past it in User Data  folder of second account.

now test it.

Why would you do this?  Just use a simple folder.  It does not need to be complicated.

Why would you do this?
Just to check if Chrome keeps that data in that Default folder or not.

Like Dave Baldwin, said it seems to be a windows service that all browsers read to point to the last upload folder...
After testing many times i could not find where windows stores the last folder used to upload...
