    Assigning where my downloads should go?

    Where do I go to change the location of where my downloads will go? They are
    going to my desktop and not my "downloads folder" Where do I go to
    assign/adjust this?

    What program are you downloading them with?

    In Internet Explorer 7, you can select where to put the files...
    in the "File Download - security" box, click on "Save"
    in the "Save As" box, click on "Browse Folders" and navigate to wherever...
    it should stay at this location for the next download, unless you change it.

    In Firefox:
    Tools - Options - Main - Downloads

    > thanks, We use firefox. Finally, I was losing my mind. I didn't know it was through the internet options. I thought it was through our files and folders, etc.... Thanks
