By default, all the files you download in Safari go to the Downloads folder. But if you want to change the default file download location; there is an option to let you get it done easily.
I prefer to save files to my separate folder as it makes a bit easy for me to access them. The desktop is also a good location to keep any file since you can instantly access and get rid of it whenever you want.

Have you installed macOS Sierra on your Mac? There are several all new features that would help you get the best out of your Mac. Personally, I like using Siri a lot. There is a trick to enable Hey Siri voice activation to let you use the assistant voice hands-free.
As macOS Sierra is still in beta, we would recommend you to install it on your secondary device. Due to some bugs, you may not have the best experience while testing it out.
