Target version:-



Only tested under windows! Reproducable!

To reproduce this, do the following:
1. Set download directory e.g. like that:
(Make sure that the "Test&example" folder already exists)
2. Add a file and set said download directory
3. Now move the item to the Download tab but do NOT start the download.
4. Now Rightclick --> Open Download Directory --> Errormessage (see attached screenshot) happens
Note that, when you start the download it will download fine in that directory and afterwards it will open that directory without any issues when doing "Open Download Directory"
