I found the following link and tried it to set the Downloadfolder to Downloads in my Homefolder.

But when I download something, it goes somewhere to ...\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\


For regular files that works as expected. But when I download a zip File as in http://www.powergui.org/entry.jspa?externalID=3371 from the download link in the red box, the download goes to ...\Temporary Internet Files\


In IE go to:

  1. Tools
  2. Internet options
  3. Under the General tab / Browsing History click on Settings
  4. Click on move folder
  5. Choose the folder you want your downloads go to
  6. Click on Ok, and another Ok.

** You might have to logoff/login for the changes to apply **
