When you download an image, font, sound, or shopping cart file, a dialog box will appear, enabling you to choose (among other things) where you want your file to be saved. (MAC USERS: If Download Manager pops up and saves the file for you, see How do I tell Download Manager where to save my file?)
- Click the arrow by the "Save in" field. A list of file locations will appear.
- Click the area in which you would like to save your file.
- If the file location you selected contains folders (subdirectories), they will appear in the box under the "Save in" field.
- If you want to save your file in one of these, double-click the appropriate folder.
- If you want to save your file in the area you originally selected rather than one of its subdirectories, ignore these folders.
