I have been using Macs for years, but I haven't gotten into particulars. Anyways, I wanted to know if I delete the contents of the Downloads folder, will it adversely affect the files that are actually stored in there. Meaning, will it delete them from other areas of my computer. I have random powerpoints, pictures, word documents, music, etc. in the downloads folder. It's reaching almost a 1000 files!! I noticed that the music is in my iTunes music folder and some of the documents are stored in the documents folder. I need assistance!
