folder default

Hi Again seavixen
To be honest I did not want to seem ignorant but there was one part I did not quite get;

>>This I undersatnd and am gld my pc is normal. [Unless you specifically change the download location, your downloads should default to C:\User Name\Downloads.]

>>If you want to change it you should click on the [COLOR=#3485bd !important][COLOR=#3485bd !important]download [COLOR=#3485bd !important]link[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] at the bottom of your screen and click Save As then point the download to a folder of your choice.
I was not clear about this one which I think is a way to change a default.
I cannot picture this. Could you give an example if you have the time?

Sorry about the second part but i will try to get it.
Thank you
