I like to d/l files to the desktop—at least documents that I want to keep. However, I typically want media such as MP4 or MP3 files to open up and play for me right then and there, without being saved to the desktop. With Firefox, I could simply click on a link and get a file to open up; or I could click save and have it go to the desktop. With Chrome, I don’t seem to be able to do this. I have the desktop set as the default d/l location, but whether I click on a link to media, or right-click and select Save As, it all goes to the desktop—even if I just want to listen to it once. This puts a lot of files onto my desktop in the course of a day—small .wav files that tell me how to pronounce words, etc. Is there any way I can have Chrome d/l all this stuff to a temp file somewhere, but still let me d/l files such as .doc or .pdf, to the desktop—automatically?

I’m not sure how to do this. Should I set Chrome’s d/l location to its temp folder, and then right-click all docs and then click on the Desktop location in the Save window? Or is there an easier way to do it? And where is Chrome’s Temp folder?
