Hi guys
im using c# web browser and i want to save some of pages when a key is pressed but when i use SaveFileDialgue a window pop ups and asks for destination!is there any way to save it directly to a specific destination without prompting me?

here it is my code:

private void btnSubmit_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
           SaveFileDialog sfd = new SaveFileDialog();
           sfd.Filter = " TEXT File |*.txt";
           if (sfd.ShowDialog() == DialogResult.OK)

If you are not using the dialog then you have to use code to do it. How else did you think?

You could skip showing the dialog, but how do you then know that you have a valid and accessible destination to save the file into?

Remove your

if (sfd.ShowDialog() == DialogResult.OK)

If you don't want a prompt, then you have to specify the path in your code directly.
This is the code for saving a file directly without using dialog box.Now try it for yours..
// create reader & open file in C drive or your location
TextWriter tr = new StreamWriter(@"C:\" + "example.txt");

// read a line of text

// close the stream
