Working Directory not being set

Since I began using R-studio I've set my working directory via the 'set working directory' tab at the top of the screen and had no issues.
However recently if I set my working directory via this method and try to load in a dataset from the location I have set, I get an error message. When I check my working directory via getwd(), my working directory is still set to my downloads folder, not the folder I specified.
I can get around it by setting my directory by using setwd(), but why is this happening and can I fix it?
