Windows 7
« on: December 30, 2014, 08:23:41 AM »
Hi Folks,

I've had Win 7 for a few months now. I would have preferred Win XP to be honest. However, one thin that annoys me. When downloading, whether it's files or whatever it goes straight to the download folder in the document folder on my desktop. What I prefer is for me to choose a folder for my downloads to go into especially files from RRW. I don't have that option. Anyone on here tell me how to change that, if it's possible to do so. I use FF.

Thanks in advance.

Regards

Donald

Hi Donald,
I use firefox but there are similar options with other browsers.
On my browser there is an open menu button, which is on the rhs of the browser.
If you scroll over the button it will tell you what it is.
Click on the button and you will find an options button.
Press that button and make sure you are on the general tab and you will find how to change your download location.
Hope that helps
Have a great New Year celebration
Jim

Hi Jim,

Happy New Year mate, hope yu had a good un. I had gone to that option before but never noticed it...lol. The only scenario I guess is I would have to go this option if I wanted to download somewhere different. When downloading I don't get an option of where to download..i.e. downloads folder, desktop etc. But this will do. Thanks again mate.

Donald

Donald, personally I use a download manager (DTA) specifically for the reason that it gives me the ability to manage where ALL my downloads end up... saves me a ton of time juggling files around the various boxes and hard drives.

This should help Donald

To be asked where you want each file to be downloaded to, you need to make sure that you've clicked on that particular button.

Thanks for that John. I'll have a look at that scenario as well. Happy New Year to you.

I use the downthemall extension for firefox to download all of my files.  It makes it so much easier especially in memberships with a large number of files to download.

You're welcome!  I've been using that one for years!  I belong to several membership sites where I need to do mass downloads.  It comes in handy!

Hi,

Just back after more PC woes, needed a new fan. Now other little issues creeping in since I got back. Happy Days.

Sorry about your computer Donald. Hopefully it will get sorted out.
