Part III: Finding What You're Looking For > Finding Programs and Files

Hour 11. Finding Programs and Files

The huge, diverse group of people that use the Internet have only one thing universally in common: They all use a computer. So it's no surprise that computer programs and files are the most common "things" you can acquire through the Internet. You can find online all kinds of Internet software, other kinds of programs (like games or word processors), documents (such as books or articles), and other useful files such as utilities and plug-ins.

To find a particular file or program you want, you can apply the search techniques you've already picked up in Hours 9, "Getting Started with Searching" and Hour 10, "Searching for Information." But in this hour, you'll learn how to use search techniques that are better focused and faster so you can find exactly the files you want. You'll also learn all about downloading the files you'll find, and about preparing those files for use on your computer.
