Download a File

  1. You'll generally download binary files such as MS Word files (.doc), PowerPoint presentations (.ppt), and Excel spreadsheets (.xls). You cannot click the icon (Section 2, column 2) or hyperlinked filename (Section 2, column 3) in order to view them. You must enter the download command.

  2. Click the checkbox in column 1 next to the filename you want to download. You can download only one file at a time (Use the tar command first if you wish to download multiple files).

  3. Click the Download link in Section 3 of the Fileman window.

  4. Your browser is probably already configured to respond to the download command with a special popup menu similar to the one below.

  5. Your options, noted in the figure above, include opening the file for viewing and editing immediately, and saving the file to disk. If you choose the first option, Open this file... be aware that the file is actually downloaded to your hard drive and stored in a temporary file. If you want a copy kept on your hard drive, where you can find it, be sure to enter the Save As command as soon as the file opens and assign the file to a directory location and check the filename it will be saved under.

  6. Note the checkbox option in the above image, Always ask before opening this type of file. We recommend you keep that box checked. The Internet is a raw frontier and it's almost always best to look before you leap!
