may seem like an easy task, but most web browsers are
configured to automatically open files with a certain
program. For example, MPEG files are usually automatically
opened with Windows Media Player when using Windows
and Internet Explorer. That probably fits most people
fine, but what do you do if you want to keep the files
and play them again without going to the website and
downloading all over again? The answer is to simply
download the file to your hard drive and play the file
from there. When you simply click on a link to a movie
file, you are downloading the file anyway, so the time
is not an issue. When the file gets downloaded automatically,
it is renamed and put in a system folder that you may
not know the location of.
using Internet Explorer, right click on the link to
the file, and a menu like the one below, will appear.
Select 'Save Target As' and choose a name and location
to save the file to.
