Change default file download folder in Internet Explorer


By default all files downloaded in Internet Explorer 9 are saved at Users\username\Downloads folder location. Users downloading lot of files may not want to save all files in primary C drive partition. You may want to save files directly to a different drive partition (say D or E drive) on Windows computer while using Internet Explorer. This can be easily done by changing the default file download folder location in IE browser.
