Direct Folders Download |WORK|
Can view allows the recipient to only view the file or folder; they cannot make changes to it. This can be further restricted by selecting the option to Block download, which means they cannot save a local copy.

Was expecting to see some controls, but I don't see them either when using Azure B2B guest access. The new secure sharing feature for OD/SPO does give me the control on top. Workaround for me is to remove the last part of the URL, which gives me the library/folder view and there I have the option to select the file and click on the download button.
That's because PDF's are opening directly in your browser from the location via a plugin. If using chrome you can use this method to cause them to download, but it's a browser thing, not a download / server thing, you're actually downloading it, it's just your browser picking it up, so you can either click the download link they provide in the plugin but that's the only way to get pdf's to download outside of zipping them etc.
@Chris LoI wanted to get a GIF file stored on OneDrive to be shown on another site. I right clicked the file and chose "view online", then right clicked the GIF in the browser and chose "copy image location" which gave me a long URL ending with... CWDi2g/lockar.gif?download&psid=1 where I then removed everything after "lockar.gif".
@Deleted Thank you so much, it worked for me. In the past 1 year, my users have trouble downloading compressed folders stored on Onedrive. You can read this problem here: -some-files-werent-downloaded/The problem that people encounter is trying to download a file in the compressed folder and that's when an error occurs. I tried many ways to create direct links from Onedrive like using the embed code but it doesn't work.
OneDrive Direct Download Link Generator is a tool that will convert the Microsoft OneDrive embedded code into a direct downloadable link so one can download the shared file without LogIn to their Microsoft account.
Sharepoint is now also supported, but it's a little trickier (it currently fetches more files from a drive than what is shown by the link). A major problem was a slightly different API structure and the fact that the session token expires after 1h, but it's solved too. They also appear to have some rate-limiting in place, so don't start too many parallel downloads.
By default, Chrome, Firefox and Microsoft Edge download files to the Downloads folder located at %USERPROFILE%\Downloads. USERPROFILE is a variable that refers to the logged in user's profile directory on the Windows computer, e.g. the path might look like C:\Users\YourUserName\Downloads. However, you can change the download folder location in your favorite browser or change the location of the Downloads folder in Windows.
Once a file has been downloaded, you will be able to see it at the bottom of the browser window. If you want to open a file that you have previously downloaded, press Ctrl + J or type chrome://downloads in the Chrome address line. The Downloads list is displayed.
The files are grouped by download date. Click on the file's name to open it. You can also navigate directly to the folder containing the file. Simply click on the Show in folder link below the file's name.
2. Go to General, then to Downloads, click the Browse button, then select the folder where you would like the files to be downloaded and click on Select Folder.
You can reach all of the files that have been downloaded during the current browser session by clicking on the arrow icon at the top. You can also browse directly to the folder containing the downloaded file. Simply click on the folder icon next to the file's name.
If you want to open a file that you have downloaded earlier, press Ctrl + J. The Downloads tab of the Library pop-up list is displayed. The files are grouped by download date. Click on a file's name to open it or click on the folder icon to browse to the folder containing the file.
If you want to open a file that you have downloaded earlier, press Ctrl + J or click on the Hub button (three horizontal bars) at the top right. The Downloads list will be displayed.
Files are grouped by downloaded date. Click on a file's name to open it. You can also quickly open the Downloads folder. Just click on the Open folder link above the file list.
One of those applications is called Direct Folders, a very discreet (and free!) application, yet an invaluable time-saver. DF keeps track of all the recent and favorite folders, and displays them in a context menu available from pretty much any Explorer window, even inside applications.
Sync links make it easy to send files and folders to just about anyone. Recipients of links cannot edit the original file in any way (links are view-only), and do not need a Sync account. Links provide a fast, secure and easy method of sharing files and folders, without bulky email attachments.
As an added convenience, you have the option of emailing the link directly from the web panel, in which case the recipient will get an email notification delivered by Sync. For a more personalized message we recommend sending the link via your own email, using the copy method above.
Basic permissions include custom passwords and removing links (to revoke access). Sync Pro and Business customers can set advanced permissions, such as download restrictions, expiry dates, activity notifications and more.
Sync Pro and Business customers can enable file uploads on links. The people you request files from can upload directly to a folder you link to, using a web browser (no Sync account required). This allows people to send you files easily.
If you share a link to a folder containing multiple files, the recipient of the link will have an option to download all of the linked files at once, as a Zip. This makes it easier and faster for people viewing your link to download multiple files.
Documents (Word/Excel/PowerPoint files/PDF file types) linked in SharePoint Online pages, navigation menu, lists, etc., open in the browser (or in client application!) directly either in Read-only mode or in Edit mode, based on user permissions. What if you want to force download a file instead of opening it in the browser with Microsoft Office Online applications? Here are some workarounds to generate a link that downloads the document directly (or a force download link).
I have to add the following: Even if you force Sharepoint to downlaod the file it still depends on the preferences in your browser whether or not the file is open in your browser/preferred app or just downloaded. That might also solve Stevos problem.
Once you paste the copied link into a hyperlink or button or whatever, just remove all text after the ? after the file extension and you get a link that directly downloads the file instead of opening it. Something like the below:
I found this solution here, which I copy pasted from: -US/f4f52b57-4e09-4ab3-b89f-0731e5ea684c/sharepoint-online-enable-direct-download-instead-of-opening-document-when-clicking-on-the-link?forum=appsforsharepoint

Extensions are restricted in where they can save files on disk. They can write to different subfolders within your Downloads folder, but can't direct Firefox to save a file outside of the Downloads folder.
Extensions can coordinate with a separate program offered by the extension's developer. You may have seen some extensions like that in your searches. The additional program needs to be downloaded and installed separately, and is not reviewed by Mozilla. Using such a "native applications," an extension can access other folders on your system. This is probably necessary to do what you want. Assuming you can find one you trust.
I've been looking, and save image to folder isn't quite what I'm looking for, and download managers don't have the features I want. I am looking for an addon/extension that can sort downloads based on extension (i.e. files with .jar extensions (typically minecraft mods) to my Multimc mods folder, .doc/.docx/etc. to Documents, .jpg/.png to Pictures, you get the drill), with the additional option to sort by keywords as well (so I can send executable .jar files to a different folder).
