Yes, that is the way it works.  It will save the file WITHOUT a window opening 
to ask you to select the directory where you want to save the file.

Perhaps your problem is more than what you have described.

Does KGet save the files without asking you where to save them?  Or, does it 
fail to save the files?

IF you have the box: "Enable integration with Konqueror" in the "Advanced" tab 
checked and KGet is not running, it appears that it doesn't work.  This is a 
Bug, and you can file a report.  Specifically, what appears to be happening is 
that KGet fails to start.

The workaround is to copy the KGet entry from the K-Menu to the Autostart folder 
by drag 'n drop.  If you do not want to have KGet started at startup, then 
uncheck the box.
