I want to hide the actual path of my downloads that look like this
and instead get something like this:
I guess I have to do this by rewriting, but I am really not comfortable with that.

You can use the plugin “Download Monitor” I use it and works great.
You could also set custom configuration in your wp-config.php file to use a different directory. Depends on whether or not you want to just hide wp-content as the directory or actually completely change it.
