    There is. If you are using Safari (I'm assuming you are) go to
    There is a option that says "Save downloaded files to:"
    Use the trop down menu to other
    In the pop-up box, select desktop. (It's on the left, places menu)

    Why would you want to save things to the desktop? The stacks make it so much cleaner.
