it depends on what it is the link is pointing to. Is it a link to an mp3 or something like that?

Use the right/click on your mouse you will see a drop menu asking several things you want to do with it, save as: this means to a folder on your computer or where ever you save downloaded things on your computer. there are othe options like, Open, thie will open the file to an applicaiton that can handle it.....

is this what you mean if not then post back as to what type of file your trying to save...ok?

yes theat is powerpint link. upload the powerpoint file that you want people to see. the browser opens in a powerpoint applicaiton -IF- the visitor has powpwerpoint on their computer, or a powerpoint viewer will work too, the file will open. You could offer the free viewer download site along side your link, so that the visitor can go get the free viewer, and then will be able to open your file.

so all you need to do then is: upload the file and it will go to your directory then just write and html code link to it: for example if the file is in your mian directory then the html for the link would be something like this:

<a href="https://www.angelfire.com/planet/jbuzzell/your-power-point-file-name.ppt"></a>Click Here for Powerpoint Presentation

viewer download link you could offer is at Microsoft:
