    Saving files


    In windows 7 I can easily download and save files,videos, pictures etc. by right clicking and selecting where to put them. It seems in windows 8 my only optoin is video or picture library.

    How can I select which location on one of several hard drives to download files to?

    Can you post a screen shot, as that doesn't seem right.

    Hello Acurtw, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    If you mean from within IE10, then it's the same as in Windows 7. You might check using the tutorial below to see if it may help.

    Hope this helps,
