Hi,

I am helping my Dad upgrading his browser on his PC. He is currently using Netscape 6 on Windows XP. I wish to download the stand alone version. Is there a way (in the preference, or other places) to re-designate where the download software should go? Cause the way my Dad's Netscape browser does now is to download to some 'Local' folder in his 'Document' folder, and the so called 'Local' folder cannot be found before nor after the download. I even tried to download via Internet Explorer and it allows me to choose my download destination. Nevertheless, my luck also ran out again, just before the download finish using IE, I got an error message of 'time out". My Dad uses the dial-up method of connecting to the internet, and each succession of downloading the new Netscape takes about one hour and forty minutes, so I have wasted over three hours. Can anyone help out?

Thanks
Maosy :confused:

Well click on tools, download manager and it will open the download manager. When you click on anything that was downloaded you can high light it and then click on show in explorer.
Now go to preferences, download and you have you options there.
Clear the download history now and then too.

Download search.

When you start a download a 'save-as box should come up. Up top there is a dropdown where you can pick where you want to download too. It will then always download to where every else you pick.
But Netscape acts funny and want to default back to it's own Netscape folder after a reboot etc so always check so you know where your downloading too. If you know you got the file but can't fine it then look in the download manager.
