How do I change the location for files I receive in AIM?

You can choose the destination of the files that you download in the Settings menu. When your buddy sends a file with AIM, you'll receive an alert in the IM window. Once you accept the file transfer, the downloaded files will be saved to the location you indicate.

Here's how to change the location of the files you receive:

1. In your Buddy List window, click Options or Menu (depending on which version of AIM 7 you're using), then click Settings.




2. In the Settings menu, click Enhanced IM.




3. In the Enhanced IM menu, under File Transfer, click Browse.




4. Select the location you would like your files to be transferred to by clicking on it, and then click OK.



5. Click Save.



Your files will now be transferred to the location you've selected.
