    You can make the change in your browser's Preferences. For example, if it's Safari you're using, open Preferences (under Safari in your menu bar) and look in the General pane – there's an option there for you to choose exactly where your downloads will be deposited, so you can create a special Downloads folder if you wish.

    You are using Tiger I take it.

    If you are using Safari, press CMD+` (or go to Safari in the Menu Bar and click Preferences).

    There, you can change the download destination.
