    What should I do with all of the files listed in the download files folder? Many of files are not associated with an application. Will I create problems later if I delete them?

    :confused: Thanks for your help!

    The Downloads folder inside your Home folder s for storing files you have downloaded via Safari, this you should know, if you need the files or not, thus if they can be deleted or not. If those files are not associated with applications, then what kind of files are they?
    Have you used the Downloads folder to install applications into?

    Also have a look at the following links to learn more about Mac OS X:

    If you delete stuff, the worst that can happen is that you'll have to find the websites you downloaded things from and dl again.
