    For some reason, my computer created a "my download" folder in another folder where I don't want it to go. How do I tell the computer to ALWAYS put downloaded files in the my download folder and no other? I have NO idea why it started doing that, but I caught it tonight, and want to stop it. Ideas? Thanks!

    What OS are you using and which browser?

    It's probably the browser that has created this new download folder, (but it may have been some other programme or even malware).

    Where it has put them and how to change the default download location will depend on your browser, but it can normally be specified and changed somewhere in the 'Options'.

    eg. For Firefox you can change it in- Tools>Options>General.

    Other browsers will have a similar setting.
