Selenium Automation + chromedriver

I am trying to automate a web application wherein clicking a link downloads a PDF file. The default behavior of chromedriver should open a pop-up window for confirmation. I am facing issue with the same, In my case the file is directly downloading without prompting.(I need to pop up to change the file name)

Why are you downloading a file in the first place?
