How do i change default save folder ?
Whenever i save a file from the internet it saves to the "Documents" folder
instead of thre "Downloads" folder even when the file i am saving is not a
document.

Is there anywhere in Vista Home Premium that i can alter the default save
destination ?

Hi Colin,

The only thing I can suggest is to Click File -> Save As, instead of
File -> Save, and browse to the Downloads folder location to save where
you want it.

Use a download manager. It speeds up your downloads and lets you specify
where they should land. Here are some:
