Gday, Ive been having some trouble lately with downloading off the net.
Whenever I click on a link to download something, lets just say some paintbrushes for Photoshop. It pops up with a window and starts downloading automatically, straight to Temp Folder. No screen pops up to choose where to download it to, so it downloads to Temp Folder instead of where I want it. If some could please help me fix it so I can download to where I want would be great. Thanks in advance, its greatly appreciated. I am using Internet Explorer.

Odd behaviour. Don't know why it does that but if you want to choose where to download something just right click the download link and choose "Save target as...".

You may have accidently changed the default settings for downloading. Is the temp folder a bad default?

It could be changed, but it would help to know which web browser you are using.
