Nope, the 7zip archive extracts the folder to the downloads folder by default

For everyone asking for a MacOS Version
Samperson is in the process of working on one however he has been a bit preoccupied with other things so the mac version of the meadow has taken a back seat, it will be released.... at some point, also it is a mac, app development on a mac is awful
You can stop the goose by either
- holding esc for a bit
- using the closegoose.bat file included with the main program
- use task manager and end the goose task
you do not have to restart the computer
you can get mods from here: https://desktopgooseunofficial.github.io/ResourceHub/mods/explore/mods.html
- download the mod that you want
- go into the goose folder
- go to assets/mods
- create a new folder in the mods folder called something unique such as "hatmod" that makes sense to you (this does not have to be the same as the mod name but it just helps)
- get the files inside the zip file and paste them into the folder that you just created
- ensure that the folder structure looks similar to this "assets/mods/MODNAME/modname.dll" (there will always be a .dll file) and not like "assets/mods/MODNAME/MODNAME/modname.dll"
- go to the folder again and open the file called "config.ini" in notepad or similar
- finally change the enable mods line from "EnableMods=False" to "EnableMods=True"
a message should then pop when you try to run the goose asking if you want to run mods, click yes
if this doesn't work then please visit the discord support server
"Join the Discord community at discord.gg/xZFRmPT" (taken from the description of the goose)
- Go to your downloads folder (extracted there by default)
- search for a folder called "DesktopGoose v0.3" (will be towards the bottom of the folder if sorted by date)
- click on the file in that colder with a green icon called "GooseDesktop.exe"
the goose is not a virus, all the videos that showcase is show the full functionality, it doesn't do anything else other than what you see.
no files are deleted from your computer, no damage is done to your computer, nothing is changed. it is just a goose
take most of the videos that you see claiming that it is a virus with a pinch of salt. they use the word virus as it gets more clicks than saying something like "I got a goose for my computer"
perhaps also look at the description of the video, do you really think large youtubers are going to post a link to a virus in the description of their video.
you are not doing anything wrong
as long as you didn't change the folder destination then all you need to do is go into your downloads folder, towards the bottom there will be a folder called "DesktopGoose v0.3" open that and double click the file with the green icon called "GooseDesktop.exe"
you could do that however depending on the speed of the computer then it is quicker to just restart it, the more geese you have open the longer you have to hold esc for anyway, if they cant control their mouse then they would have a fun time trying to use task manager
download the program from this site
go into your downloads folder and find a folder called "DesktopGoose v0.3" (it wont appear at the top if you have the folder sorted by date),
inside that folder there is a file with a gree icon called "GooseDesktop.exe" double click on that and you should have a goose
hope this helps
If you ran the file that you got from this site then that is only the extractor, assuming that you clicked through everything then a folder will be created called "DesktopGoose v0.3" it will be towards the bottom as for some reason 7zip archives preserve the original creation date, inside that folder there is a file called Goosedesktop.exe (the one with the green icon) this is how you start it, to start it more easily you may want to create a shortcut and put it on your desktop, the closegoose.bat file is a way of stopping it, you can also use task manager or by holding the esc button, this will close the goose, to get it back simply run the Goosedesktop.exe program again and your goose will return
Hope this helps
it is already possible to add more memes to the goose, there are a few collections on this site here: https://desktopgooseunofficial.github.io/ResourceHub/
go into the assets folder then images then memes, any images in there will be dragged in by the goose, you can also edit the notepad messages by going into Assets/Text/NotepadMessages
all the files are located by default in C:\Program Files (x86)\Samperson\Desktop Meadow
if you delete that folder then it will stop, this is sadly because the uninstaller that comes with it is broken at the moment, it is however planning to be fixed soon
