Chrome with prompt_for_download=false

When Openbots launches Chrome on my machine, it is open by default with "Ask where to save each file before downloading" enabled. Is there a way to create the instance of Chrome with this option disabled? StackOverflow ( indicates that the parametre "download.prompt_for_download" needs to be set to false, and I presume this should be possible in the Create Browser's Selenium Command Line, but not sure how exactly I should go about that...

this is currently not a setting available through the Create Selenium Browser command. However, using the Native Commands for web browser automation, will allow you to create a session on Chrome that uses your machine's saved history and settings.
