Downloading Instructions

Download prompts can come in many forms. On my web site, it will usually be a text link that appears like this: CLICK HERE. or a "Start Download" button that looks like this.

Left-click on the download link (on the download page). If you're using the Internet Explorer browser, you might see the following window.

If so, choose...
"Save this program to disk."
(as shown)
This does not mean that you are saving it to a floppy disk. Actually, you'll save it to the desktop of your hard drive (which counts as a "disk") in the next step...

After choosing "Save this program to disk" (or if your browser skipped that step), you will see the following window. Click (where shown below) and scroll until you see "Desktop" (with little lamp-on-desk icon).

NOTE: Do not actually click on the picture -- it's just an example.

Note: In this example, the user is downloading "tutorial.exe." Whichever file you are downloading, its name will automatically appear in the "File name" box.

Good! You're all set to download. Click on the Save button and the download will proceed to your desktop
