Ok so, I download a good amount of programs. I have both an SSD and a HDD. I only want my boot up and games on the SSD but as of now, everything is saving to SSD because when I go to download something it don't let me choose where to save it to.(i.e. skype,aim,pokerstars,etc...) All these things I do NOT want to download on my SSD. How can I make it so that whenever I download something it will make the HDD the primary hard drive? And also when I want to download a game,how do I make sure I download it to the SSD? Thanks for any help <3

Somewhere in your browser settings there is an option to specify the folder in which the downloads are saved by default. You can download a game to the same folder the downloads go, and then when you install the game you'll have the option to specify where you wish it to be installed. Once it is installed, you can delete the downloaded game files from the downloads folder.

I have firefox,I don't see it anywhere. Is there a button somewhere that I can click to make it so that everytime something is going to download,I can choose which drive to put it on?

First, create a new folder on your desired hard drive... name it something other than Downloads. Then look at the pictures below.

Or you can select the option "Always ask me where to put download".

Oh sweet. I checked the box for always ask me where to put download. Hopefully everytime I install a game or application it will ask me now :)  Thanks a lot.
