    back in the day (as in, before I downloaded a bunch of Apple updates that were backing up for two months :eek: ) I was able to right-click on a linked file in Safari and use the "download link to disk" menu option to select a file location.

    Now with the latest updated Safari I have to go to the prefs and select a single location that files will download to, and whenever I right-click on a linked file that location is listed as the download destination ("save linked file to X"), and no other. Is there a way to revert back to the old "let me browse every time I download a file" method?

    Hold the Option key as you right-click and you will then be able to choose where the file goes.

    Kick A**! Thanks. I wonder why they felt the need to do that...
