I thought Maxie's suggestion in post #3 was a good solution too.

And btw - I think nobody was trying to bash you. I guess we just did not understand your problem.

Downloading to the Desktop goes back aways to Win95 but that can get things cluttered. Win7 and Win8 create a Downloads Folder in Windows Explorer [File Explorer on Win8/8.1] in the left panel under Favorites or the actual Folder is in C:\Users\user-name. Most browsers can be set to point to that Folder in their Options or Preferences.

It wasn't showing as such when I logged in. Guess I'll go on to something else.

Desktop icon position
When using Windows XP I used a little program called "Icon Restore" which saved and restored the position of the desktop icons. This program does not work with Windows 7 - 64bit (32bit is supposed to be OK). Is there a way to either use the old program or get the same results in another way?
