You specify the folder you want to download to in the Preferences of the browser that you are using.
By default, the download location for Safari is the Desktop.

As I said, you designate the folder you want to download to in the Preferences of the browser that you are using.

In Safari, probably the most used browser on a Mac running OS X, the default is the desktop. In other browsers it may be a different default location.

This is obviously not that urgent.

(NT) Dude, just use Firefox preferences to change it.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
