    Recently I wanted to download something to my desktop (Windows 7). Ever since, everything downloads to my desktop–from Google, Office 365, Firefox, etc. How can I change the download location back to the library location?

    Thank you!

      Check for the downloads sections of a browser settings, you can usually change the target save location there.

      In Firefox:
      Tools\Settings\General. Then scroll down to Files and Application\Downloads
      Save files to and Choose – point at the folder you want for default.
      Then if you check “Always ask” you have the opportunity to change the location if you need to, but it will always maintain your chosen default.
