My download window settings are set for my desktop, but whenever I download something it shows up in my Apple mailbox and I cannot open it. Can anyone offer any suggestions to help fix this. It worked correctly, and then all of a sudden, it just started downloading into the mail. ??? I am using an imac with OSx 10.4
TIA.... Jo

I have found the download location to be flaky also. Try this: set the download location to the Documents folder at the root level of your drive. Give that a test, if that works, then try changing it back to the Desktop. It worked for me, although I can't tell you why!

Hi Sherman,
Thank you very much... It worked... It's so good to have places like this to network on the different quirky things that happen to one.

I really appreciate you replying....
