Hello to all and thanks in advance for your assistance. I am new to Macs and I have some downloading issues. When I download a movie file, it begins to play automatically in Quicktime after downloading. How do I stop this? I went into quicktime preferences and under the "browser" tab I unchecked the box that says "play movies automatically once they are downloaded by your browser". This didn't work. I restarted my computer to see if that would help but it didn't. I don't want my movies to play once they are downloaded. I only want them to play when I want them to. While we are on the subject of downloading: When I go to download a file or app or whatever, when I click on the link, it automatically opens a downloads folder and puts the file there. Is there any way, like in windows, to have the file saved into a folder that I specify? Thanks again to all.
