Sorry (ashamed actually) to say I am still confused about where my downloads end up on my W10 desktop. Would appreciate getting squared away.

 

1. I download an app. Should it not appear in C:\This PC\downloads ? It does not appear there. How can I make it appear there?

 

2. The listing I get when I go to File Manager C:\This PC\Downloads, how I can order this listing to make the most recent download appear at the top?

 

Thanks.  ... batpark
