Windows 7: Customize "Downloads" folder path

Customize "Downloads" folder path

In Win-XP Internet Explorer "Downloads" folder path could be set in ...

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer
Name:= Download Directory
Data:= <my preferred path>

I do not use Internet Explorer, but occasionally some downloads do not give me any option where to download to.
Nor do I use MS default Downloads folder at all.
What/where can I tweak the registry in Win-7 ?
Key-Path ?
Name ?
Type ?
Data ?
Win-7 registry is not the same as Win-XP
