    Where are my downloaded files?

    Okay, I researched this in RC1 and got some suggestions as to typing path
    names for files I download that are not visible in my Documents folder
    (sandbox was mentioned as the culprit). I now have the RTM and still cannot
    see files I download. How do I set defaults in Vista so it doesn't hide my
    downloaded files!?

    this location c:\users\[logon]\downloads

    Which cunningly doesn't appear on "Favorite Links" by default! Had me confused
    for a while as well.
