How to Download a File

Sometimes it’s a little tricky to figure out how to download a file from a link on a web page, when you’re in your favorite Web browser.  Here’s how to tell your browser to do that (each browser is a little different!):

ie-256 Internet Explorer Right-click your mouse over the link, and, in the resulting pop-up menu, select the “Save target as…” menu item. In the resulting dialog, navigate to where you wish to place the file, and click on “Save” button.
firefox-512 Mozilla Firefox Right-click your mouse over the link, and, in the resulting pop-up menu, select the “Save link as…” menu item. In the resulting dialog, navigate to where you wish to place the file, and click on “Save” button.
chrome-512 Google Chrome Right-click your mouse over the link, and, in the resulting pop-up menu, select the “Save link as…” menu item. In the resulting dialog, navigate to where you wish to place the file, and click on “Save” button.

(Note: The above is on Microsoft Windows; it may be slightly different on a Mac.)
