    When you are on Safari, you will Apple Menu, with Safari, click that and you will see preferences.

    On that popup, you will see a Tab called General, under which you will see the "File Download Location" with a drop down.
    That is where you downloads are going to..

    With those settings, when you download anything off of Safari it should save in the Downloads folder in Finder.
