How to set path for downloading files for wget

How do we set the path where a downloaded file will be saved, using wget?

Also is there a way to download a folder ?

Typically wget downloads to the current directory, although have you tried.

I don't often do this, but you really need to read the manual - it covers everything you are asking (man wget)
