Hi,

You can press alt+d
To change folder
1. Press alt+d
2. press ESC once. JAWS says Desktopp split button or similar.
3. Move with left  and right arrow to topp folder. then choose folder in
this folder with down and up arrows.

The challenge is that I divided my downloads folder into subfolders. I want
to know the folder that is being defaulted to because different things I
grab from the net go in different subfolders.

hi vista defaults now to saving files in your download folder.
you can hit the brows button in the tool bar it will show you the list view
then of where you are  saving a file and you can change it if need be.  
the downloads folder though is a good place to save things from the
internet.

Here's how I was taught a long time back. a little trick.

You first give a name to a folder, put it on the desktop. I always use DL. 
for download. then, the first time only I download anything, before I choose

save finally, I tab over twice more to where to save to, and choose the DL
folder which is there and always seen by vista or xp pro because it appears
on the desktop. Once you choose dl once, and it downloads, it always
downloads there for ever. This way you always know where your downloads are
going, and can memorize the path if need be.
