When I download anything from the net a download box appears and I have no choice the document is always downloaded to the desktop...how do I set up a system to ensure that downloads are place where I want them each time, as I have to move them around after they have been downloaded?
Thank you for any suggestions!!

Welcome to Geeks To Go :)

Given you know where you want to place the downloads...

You can by default set where the documents will be placed...


If you are using Mozilla Firefox


Click on Tools at the top...

Then click on Options

In the center of the window is the info regarding downloads...

you can select a specific place to send the downloads everytime.

Or you can set it to prompt for instructions from you where to place said file...

Then just click OK

If you are currently using Internet Explorer I would suggest Mozilla Firefox.

It is an excellent web browser that is much safer to use than IE.

You can download it from my Signature if you would like to use it...

If you choose not to use Mozilla I would like to have one of our techs advise you how to change the download location of IE... It involves several modifications to the registry. I don't currently feel comfortable helping you with at this time with this modification."for you protection"

let me know how it works out.

Good luck
