You are all are a bunch of freaks!!

Just teasing, but c'mon.

If you have too much stuff on your Desktop, just stop putting things there. If an app puts it's stuff there without you asking it to, tell it to stop. If there's no way to make it stop, delete it and send a nasty letter to the developer.

Bunch of freaks huh???

I fully agree with you. I hate new programs that are set to default to
save things to your desktop..... It is really annoying.

I do have to say however I have yet to run into a program that i have
not been able to change the saved\downloaded files somewhere else
besides the desktop.

Good comment though. I like it...

Let me second the notion that using a non-Desktop destination for downloads would seem to be step one for anyone wanting to eliminate desktop clutter. And further, that any application that performs downloads and doesn't allow you to specify a different default location seriously needs to be brought up to standard practice by its developer.

Another option is DockDisks (http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/7470) which puts drives (the internal and two firewire externals) on the dock. Caveat: It does have the disadvantage of relaunching your dock everytime a disk is mounted
