How to download

At times, you will want to download files or save images from the Web to your computer. The process of downloading a file varies from site to site, so it may require some trial and error. Sometimes when you click on a link, it downloads automatically, but other times it just opens within your browser.

A good practice for successful downloading is to right-click the link and select Save Target As. By doing this, you will be able to choose the folder where the file is saved.
