Sorry if this isn’t the right place to post this!
Okay so this is probably the worlds stupidest question but i’ve got a brand new mac and i have no clue what i’m doing. i feel like a 90 year old learning how to use google.

How do you save your files directly to your hard drive, instead of icloud?

Google suggested Preferences>iCloud>iCloud Drive>Options, and uncheck the Desktop & Documents option, but this brings up a message saying "If you continue, items will be removed from the Desktop and the Documents folder on this Mac and will remain available in iCloud Drive." That sounds like the opposite of what i want.

Any help?

Files should automatically save to both the hard drive and iCloud. If you're still able to access it offline then it's saved to the hard drive.
