Give the option to change the default download application

Using linuxmint 18. Cinnamon desktop. Clicking upon a download link in an email will bring up the default file manager. This needs to be changed to default download manager. Is there an option I've missed somewhere
to change this? This is important because there are times when a linux user needs to download a propriatory windows formatted file and it won't "open" in a default program.
