Default a question about downloading files from internet explorer 11

Hey guys, I just switched to Windows 7 which has Internet Explorer 11 and I'm having trouble getting my downloads from my email account to download to the proper folder. I put my download settings to the folder I want, but every time I download something it puts it into a category called "compatibility files" and it's making it harder for me to find the files I download. Can anyone tell me why this happens, and how can I make it so that it actually downloads to the original folder?. Any feedback is greatly appreciated. Thanks and have a good one.

Easy solution, join the 21st Century and download Chrome or FireFox. :) Chrome is faster but FireFox tends to have more features. IE tends to be the slowest, and has the least amount of features.

See this link and it is enough if your internet version is for desktop
http://www.winhelp.us/internet-explorer-11-download-manager-and-pinned-sites.html
It is useful and contains all the tricks that you need. It shows how to change the default download s
This version stores pic in one default, other downloads in one default.
What you have to do is to download and click save button and in the tool menu select view downloads and in the menu emerging, you have to choose the option down under and click it. It will show the default location, just change this to your choice and your problem solved. All the downloads will be automatically switches to your folder.
If suppose, you download pic, it goes to my picture in your account by default, just choose the option and click and select your folder for the first time and all the pictures will be downloadaed to your choicest folder. It is very easy and you could see the download folder in the view download box

Internet Explorer is the best web browser out there.............for downloading Chrome or Firefox.

Honestly, take some time and get Google Chrome and/or Mozilla Firefox. It will save you a lot of headache.

for those that discredit internet explorer by it's speed are too stuck in their ways and haven't tried the latest version

yes google chrome is slightly faster (if you use addons like flashblock and adblock)

the same can be said for firefox

but there isnt much difference now between to top 3 in relation to speed and if someone posts an issue about internet explorer then that's the answer the poster deserves

@Robert - follow Chandra's advice and if you cannot get resolve then maybe look at other browser options

I have both google chrome and internet explorer installed - basically because one particular site I use frequently works better in ie11
