    Actually, the title doesn't say anything at all. Why don't you try asking your question in plain English and we'll try to help you?

    Where there is no Downloads folder, what Mac is that and what Mac OS X version does it run?
    Identify your Mac and Mac OS X version
    If it is Mac OS X 10.4 and earlier, then there is no standard DOWNLOADS folder.
    And if you have 10.5 or 10.6, then you could always create your own DOWNLOADS folder, or at least look into the Trash.

    Btw, your thread title might be confused with you wanting to download iStat to your Home directory or something similar.
    To edit your thread title, just click on the [​IMG] button on the bottom right of your original post and then click the "Go Advanced" button below your message.
    Example: No "Downloads" folder in my Home directory/folder in Mac OS X 10.x, where the x stands for your Mac OS X version.

    What happens when you right click on the Dock icon of the Downloads folder and select Open "Downloads"?

    If it opens a Finder window of the actual Downloads folder, enable the Path Bar in Finder to see the location of that mysterious Downloads folder.

    Can you find something via Spotlight (CMD+SPACEBAR or clicking the loupe icon in the top right)?

    And just out of curiosity, what Mac OS X version do you have on what Mac?
