I believe I am one of Mark Twain's imbeciles.  I have done as you suggested.  
The 'Data Diretory' contains a movie that I am uploading but do not intend to 
keep.  It is not for me, but I always return what I borrow.

In any event, I have a download list of approximately 6 movies, none of which 
will install in the torrent package.  I even installed a second Torrent 
Application 'Deluge' to see if that might work.  So I now have Deluge and 
Ktorrent.  

I seem to remember sending you a print-screen of my desktop which has the page 
that lists them.  I can resend if you like, however, if I double-click on any 
of those in the list they 'do not' install in the Torrent Application.  
Neither can I drag and drop them.  I have attempted so many reconfigurations 
that I no longer can remember the original that worked.

I have another post relating to 'find' and 'locate' objectives, that was posted 
partially due to the problem I am having here.  I thought if I could fine the 
folder that contains the list of downloaded Torrents that appear in a window 
on my desktop, I could perhaps locate and enter that folder and attempt 
double-clicking from there.

I am sure your advice works fine most of the time, and I have done something 
that makes my situation different, but if you are willing to add any new ideas, 
I would appreciate it.

Steven
