Hi, my name is Luke, and this is, “How to Put My Downloads Into One Folder on My Desktop.” If you’ve downloaded something, the default download location is My Downloads. If you’d like to move these downloads to a folder on your desktop, right-click anywhere on your desktop, hit New, and then Folder. As you can see, I’ve created a new folder called “My Downloads.” Next, click on the Start bar. Click on your username, and then navigate to the folder called “Downloads.” Here, you can see I have a lot of downloads. I’m going to hold Ctrl on the keyboard, and press A. This will select all the files in my download folder. I’m now going to right-click on one of the highlighted files; go to Copy. Next, we’re going to navigate to the folder on our desktop. Double-click to open, and then right-click, paste. As you can see, windows has moved all the files into the folder on my desktop. And, that’s it!
