Chapter 27. Downloading Files > Downloading from a File Archive Website

Downloading from a File Archive Website

Where do you find all these wonderful files to download? The best places to look are websites dedicated to file downloading. These sites are called file archives, and they typically store a huge variety of freeware and shareware programs and utilities.

Downloading a file from any of these archives is typically easy. Once you locate the file you want, you're prompted to click a specific link to begin the download. Some sites will begin the download automatically; other sites will prompt Windows to display a dialog box asking whether you want to save or open the file (you want to save it), and where you want to save it. Follow the onscreen instructions to begin the download.
