    Default download location?
    Hi, all!!

    How do I change the location of the default download folder system-wide? I don't want things downloaded to the main boot drive...

    Thanks!

    It's in your browser preferences, so it depends on which browser you are using.

    Safari



    Firefox



    ...and so on

    Along the same lines, can you drag the downloads file onto the dock in the area of the applications folder and have your download accessible from there? If so, do you need to change anything in the search engines? TIA

    You can drag your downloads folder to the right side of your dock to the left of the trash and set your browser preferences to save downloads to the downloads folder.
    Then yes, your downloads will be accessible from there.
