HOW TO DOWNLOAD A FILE

DOWNLOADING A FILE


July 23, 2013
[MY COMPUTER TUTORIALS]

FOR OLD COMPUTERS:   First, you need to find out how much free space you have on the hard drive, before downloading any file,. There's a possibility that  you don't have any more space in your hard drive, especially when you're using a very old computer. Some files are huge some aren't, it also depends on what kind of file you want to download. To do this, Go File Explorer, then My Computer, then right-click on Local Disk (C: Drive) click on Properties. It's also  important that you update your Adobe flash player as well as the Java program. Your Screen resolution for the program to run properly depends on what OS you are running. For Win 8.1 OS;  is on- by it's default screen resolution.

  • For Windows: Pink Colour is free space, while the Blue Colour is used.

Hard Drive: C




Hard Drive: C [Pink-Free Space]

  • Image-showing details, on how to find and download a file: Just type Google earth on your search crawler.


Search/Address  Bar Window

  • Type/ Search the file on the address bar. Click the Link/Company Name where the file is located. Read the reviews of the software you want to download/use. Make sure you are aware of the pros and cons. (the advantages/disadvantages). Get to know the other soft-wares attached to it, if you will agree to have the free download. It depends on what kind of application you want to download, some are just there for free downloads and some aren't.  Mostly,  I found out that if a certain software is in demand, ex, a free   application to make ring tones, that principal software will not function the way you want it,  unless you will also agree to download the attachments, example:  another extra search bar for you.  If you are worry  to have another extra software in your system, I strongly recommend, you buy one online. Click then the download button. A windows dialogue will pop-up and will give options to save or download the file. Save the file to your Downloads Folder.

  • Saving the file to the  Downloads Folder:

  • Look for the file that it was  saved  earlier,  open it, and or  right- click on the file and choose run/download file.

Check the preferences: check box that says make a shortcut on my desktop/task-bar/start-up. Close windows dialogue that says finish downloading/ check restart the computer now. Using the program that you download, ex. GOOGLE EARTH  most often, all of these soft-wares are easy to use, they all are self explanatory. There is also a Help tab attached to the tool bar,  for you to use.
