Losing downloads in Win 7
With apologies to anyone to whom this might seem a bit 'suck those eggs Granny'...! I'm having more and more peeps pm'ing me saying they 'lose' their downloads in Win7. Here's a screenshot of what you see when you go into your Explorer (NOT Internet Explorer - that's different!). If you look at the left hand pane, you will see your different categories and libraries. In the middle of that left hand pane are the ones you probably use the most; Libraries: Documents, Music, Pictures, videos. Then there is Homegroup, Computer and finally Network. But up at the top of the pane is another group entitled Favourites: which has Downloads, Recent Places, Libraries and Desktop. When you download something, unless you especially select where you want it to go, it will probably go into 'Downloads', so that's the place to look! This happens even if you right-click to 'snag' a piccie to paste in your graphics program - it will usually go into 'downloads' too. It's best to clean out your 'download' folder regularly and file stuff properly if you're keeping it or delete stuff if you aren't, otherwise it becomes unwieldy and you'll never find stuff in there. http://www.trimcraft.co.uk/images/projects/main/b167c5e599efdf0a5fdc6d5664412cbb_1_41015.jpg I hope this helps anyone still a bit confused with Win 7 - it took me months to get my head around it! Hugs, Ei x

Housekeeping tip of the day: Always keep a few get well cards on the mantelpiece, then visitors will think you have been ill and unable to clean!

Re: Losing downloads in Win 7
I never notice this thread before...it confused me initially when I got my new pc but then windows7 tour explained that to make things simple everything goes into one central place... aptly named downloads and that all made perfect sense. I just have to remember to make folders in there or it gets as messy as my craftroom :lol:

Re: Losing downloads in Win 7
ceej - you don't need to leave them there! I download tot he downloads folder, then once a week, or so, tidy up and move to the appropriate folders elsewhere. In fact, I prefer to keep it relatively empty - easier to find stuff.
