    download file problems
    I accidentally dragged the download file off the dock but placed it back using the advice found here. Dragged from my home directory to the dock without a problem but since then any new downloads are only saved in the download home directory file.

    How do I change this to file save the new files on the dock?

    Did you drag the "Download" folder so that it's to the right of the dock separator? The download folder on the dock is actually an alias of the folder which is in your Finder sidebar. However, it won't work unless you drag it to the correct location on the dock.

    Yes I did. I placed it where it was originally, to the right of the separator.

    Are you sure you dragged the correct folder? If it as you say you dragged the download folder from the Finder sidebar to the correct location on the Dock, it has to work. As I mentioned above, the Dock folder is only an alias.

    When you download a file with Safari, Chrome, FF, whatever, and you tell it to go to the download folder, it should appear in both places at the same time.
