Download location help pls

Most downloads go to the download folder in my user profile, but I'd like them to go onto the desktop so I can put them easily into their relevant folders. I've just got an external hard drive (500Mb) and in order to free up space I'm going to attempt to put all the kids music and photo's there. So will probably be back on again. Tango18

When you download anything the next time, use the download applet to browse to your Desktop, so the download is saved there.

When you download anything from now on, it should offer to save to your Desktop only. That's until you manually change its location again, or it somehow gets reset to the default location.

Another way is to create a shortcut of your user profile folder (i.e. where downloads are being saved), & place this shortcut on your Desktop. G
