Solved How to download file from DOS?

Specs: Windows 7, Intel Celeron Duo T3300 @ 2GHz 64MB L2
Hello forum,
I wonder how to download a specific file from the internet to a specific place on my drive.
So let's say
How do I download that to C:\Users\Ray\Desktop ?
If there is a variable for e.g. Firefox that returns the download path, then I can get Firefox's download path, use start command, and run that file from there. Then it should be like:
:top
(get firefox's download path)
(set firefox as default browser when not so)
start "http://download.thinkbroadband.com/5MB.zip"
:search
if exist 5MB.zip goto run
if not exist 5MB.zip goto search
:run
start 5MB.zip
:end

So... Any way to download from DOS? Thanks.

There is no DOS in Windows 7. There is a command-prompt but it's not true DOS.

In Firefox, you can set the download location in the Firefox options, so what's all this nonsense about using DOS?

Firefox 8:

Click Options > Options > General > Save files to.......
