Windows 7: Downloads folder not accessible

In addition, is this just a Downloads folder that the download manager program you are using created?

If so, then are you able to set the download manager program to save to your "C:\Users\Downloads" folder instead of the Downloads folder it created in your "C:\Users\Documents" folder.

I do not believe so. Anytime I downloaded something, an email attachment for example the default location always seemed to be the "Downloads" folder located under "Favorites." The default has changed for some unknown reason to a "Downloads" folder under "My Documents." I changed the download designation on the one program you are referring to.

I would like to change the default download site back to the "Downloads" folder under "Favorites." Not sure how to accomplish that?

Let`s start at the beginning, open explorer and right click downloads, now click open folder location. Does it open the same window as mine ?

Now right click the downloads icon in the large window and choose properties, then Location. Does it look the same as mine ?

Just to clarify, what does the Downloads folder in your Documents show for the same above?

Following step 1, right clicking on "Documents" under "Libraries" does not produce the "Open Folder Location" option.

Right clicking the "Downloads" folder under Documents also does not produce a "Open Folder Location" option.

When you right click on that Downloads folder and click on Properties, does it have a "Location" tab, and what does it have for it's path in the "General" tab?
