how do i change where my downloads go

Specs: Windows 7
I'm using a website called video2mp3 to convert youtube songs/videos to mp3. It converts then downloads but I can't seem to find the file. No dialog comes up to say if you wish to open or save... it is all done within the browser.

Right click maybe and save as or go to the browser option panel and select it there.

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?

For downloads thru Internet Explorer:

Create a download folder, such as E:\Downloads ( where E: is your preferred drive for downloads )

Open Regedit and expand HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer

On the right pane, there should be an entry named Download Directory.

Right-click it and click Modify.

Change the Value to your new download location, such as


Close Regedit.

After you log off and back on, your downloads will go to E:\Downloads

For Windows Live Mail attachments:

Open Regedit and expand HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail

On the right pane, there should be an entry named Attachment Path.

Change its value to E:\Downloads.

When you want to save e-mail attachments, they will go to E:\Downloads folder.

You can change the folder path anywhere you like, such as X:\My downloads\IE8 downloads

Y:\My downloads\WLM downloads.

The only thing is, you must create the folders and then you must specify the paths correctly in Registry.

NOTE: Incorrectly modifying Registry may create problems and cause Windows to not boot properly. So please take extreme caution or do not touch Registry.
