How to download files from the web



This is a set of generic instructions to follow when downloading a file from the internet. If you are looking for programs to download for email, web browsing, and other internet tasks, see the technical support page.



  1. Click the web page link on the site you are downloading from.



  2. Your browser may then ask you what you would like to do with the file. Tell it to save the file to your disk. If you know where you would like to save the file then specify the location, or just accept the default and click Save. That same window will also be displaying the name of the file -- remember it or write it down in case you need it later.



  3. The file will then begin downloading. This will take a few minutes depending on the speed of your modem. A meter on your screen informs you of the download progress.



  4. Once the download is complete close your web browser and any other running programs. Then go to where you saved the file at. If you do not know where it is you can find it by going to Start, then Find and then Files or Folders in Windows 95/98; File Manager, then File and Search in Windows 3.x; or File and Find in Macintosh. Once you locate the file double-click it to install.
