I need instructable images that I "Save-As" to go into Pictures Folder, NOT Download Folder by default Answered

PC Question: Just recently, every image I "Save-As" goes into my Download Folder by default unless I manually redirect it to my Pictures Folder. Then the next image I "Save-As" goes into my Download Folder again. I want all images to go into my Pictures Folder. What am I does wrong? Could a piece of software from my Epson printer be causing this. Thanks for helping!

I am going to take a wild guess at this, and my guess is there is a setting for how your browser saves things. I don't which browser you are using, but since I use Firefox, I know that in Firefox this setting is in: Preferences-->General-->Downloads

and it gives you a choice for handling downloads in one of two ways.

(1) If the "Save files to: [specific folder]" button is checked it will always save files to the same place. I think by default this is a folder named "Downloads"

(2) If the "Always ask me where to save files" button is checked, it will always ask where you want to download a thing, every the browser needs to download something, including
