2017 Make
Under window preferences, I set file location for Components. When downloading Warehouse components, I choose not to install in model. I want to install into my component directory instead. Now, every time I want to do this, I must set up the path so it goes where I want it to go. How do I make the path the default?

The path set under Preferences>Files is for components that are in the SketchUp model. When you right click on a component and choose Save as... that is the default directory. If you are just downloading components from the Warehouse to save into a directory, you'd probably do better to go to the 3D Warehouse in your browser and download them that way. Then, once you set the desired save to location, they should all automatically go there.

Out of curiosity, what sort of components are you collecting?

I've got Make 2016 on my desktop. There, when I choose not to place component in model, a dialog box appears that directs the file to my components folder and to "save as". No such dialog appears with Make 2017. Instead, my Windows file explorer opens and I'm told not only to "save as", but then I'm required to indicate where to put the file.

I understand that. If you aren't inserting the files into your model, it'll be more efficient to just work through your browser.
