Changing default hard drives

So I have a newly built computer, and I got a 64GB SSD to put my OS and a few apps on to speed it up, and I also have a 1TB mechanical HDD for storage. Whenever I try to download or install anything it automatically goes to the SSD which is filled to the point it want it at. How do I change this to make things automatically save/install on the HDD?

    Libraries - Documents, Music, Pictures, etc
    Create some locations on the HDD. I prefer to go with MyStuff, with subfolders of MyDocs, MyMusic, etc
    Under Libraries, right click on Documents. Select Properties
    Either Add (Win8), or Include a folder(Win7)
    Select the location you made earlier
    Once added, select "Set save location"
    Repeat for anything else you want to go to the HDD

    For Downloads, right click, and change the "Target'
