    What @owen_sparks says. Somewhere in the "Advanced settings" if you are using Chrome and I imagine something similar in other browsers. This will of course direct all downloads to the new destination, it won't be OS specific.

    In Chome, I have the "ask where to save file before downloading" checked, then you can spec path or just change the default Download Location.
