I have been using Windows 7 for about a month now. I had heard so many 
stories on these lists about how hard it was to download anything with 
IE 9 that I used IE8 for the first few days, but then I tried IE 9 and 
it does not present a problem for me. I just have to remember to go to 
the notification bar when I download something. Windows 7 does seem to 
have an idea of its own where downloads should go and I understand that 
it can be directed to put them elsewhere, but I learned how to handle it 
from where Windows 7 puts them so I have not really looked into learning 
how to send them to the folder I want them in. If you go to the start 
menu and then arrow once to the left and then down arrow once you will 
find an icon labeled owner. If you down arrow once more you will find an 
icon labeled documents. It is the first icon that you will want to 
click. Once you do that you will find a number of icons that you can 
look at by right and left arrowing. Click the one labeled downloads and 
you will find the file you just downloaded. Then go to the menu after 
you have highlighted the file you want and under the edit menu there is 
an option for moving the file to another folder. Click that one and the 
process is pretty much the same as in Windows XP. Then just move it 
wherever you want it to be. This may be more complex than just directing 
the download to the folder where you want it in the first place, but I 
spent some time trying to figure out how to do that and the figuring out 
was more complex than the way I actually discovered, so I am now just 
downloading to the place that Windows 7 wants it and then just moving it.
