Downloading help

When i'm surfing and i want to download an image or whatever, i right click and the menu only offers me two download options... download to my downloads folder, or download to iPhoto (for images).



How do i set it so that i can pick the folder that i want to DL something to after i right-click? It's kinda annoying to have to DL to the DL folder and then manually move it later.



Thanks!

    Try holding down the control key.

    I'm using a two-button logitech mouse. Right-clicking is the same as holding down the CTL key.

    Drag and Drop Or you can select prefs from the finder menu on safari, Under general you can select a folder of your choice. As kickaha has explained in the other thread,OSX is drag n drop throughout



    There are smart folder's and applescripts (thinking automator here) that will do the hard work for you. IE, you can chuck everything in one folder and it'ss say move all JPG's,PNG's ect to another. OSX is designed to let you get on with your work and not be stuck messing around like you do in windows

    When that menu appears, hold the option key (or is it the alt key?) and the options will change.
