Zip files lost after downloading

How can I specify where I want downloaded zip files to go with XP?
In the good old days with Win 98 the downloaded zip appeared on the desktop and could be unzipped from there, but with my new XP I seem to have no say about where I want downloads to go; I click to d/load the file from the net and it auto-d/loads it into a "Temporary Folder" which is empty when I look in it!
I also use the XP's over-complicated "find file" routine to search for the zips title but it can't find it..

Which browser? When you use find file, do you use advanced options to look in sub-folders?
