So I've recently built a new computer, using a 1tb HDD and 180gb SSD. I have installed my operating system on to my SSD and have installed Steam and games etc on my HDD.
However whenever I download a file it goes to my SSD (C drive) under users, same with saving things to desktop, they're saving to my C drive when I want them on my H drive (HDD). I've got my SSD for Windows 7 and for most programs and maybe a few games which I frequently play and my HDD is for all my files such as movies, games, music, pictures etc. How can I make these things save to my HDD automatically? :/

Create a download folder on your HDD, set your browser/torrent application/whatever to download to that folder than too the SSD.

Desktop is the main problem here. Every time I save something to my desktop or drag it to the desktop it goes to my C:\Users\Sean\Desktop (C is my SSD)

Far as I know, there is no easy way to change where the desktop saves too.
You can get tricky using symbolic links and such to "move" where the desktop is saved too while it still looks like its going to C: as far as the OS can tell, but its just easier to change your behavior rather than go through that.
