Assuming "E" is a data disk and available for writing and saving files:
  • Create the folder you want to use on the "E" partition
  • Set your browser to use that Downloads folder

Yellow_Arrow_Bullet_2.jpg  Downloads folder selection is available in your Browser's Options or Settings.

 

Examples:

 

Firefox > Tools > Options > General > Adjust the "Save files to" setting

 

Edge > Settings > Advanced Settings > Adjust Downloads folder selection

 

Internet Explorer > Settings Wheel > View Downloads > Options > Adjust Downloads settings

 

Chrome > Settings > Advanced Settings > Adjust Downloads settings
