Hi Wizkid.

Simply click on the location where you wish to save the download/file in the left hand "branch menu". Your download will then be saved to your chosen location and the location will be added to the drop down menu.

Hope this helps.

When you are asked for location, click on Favorites (left pane) and Desktop will be one of the options.

That help?
