A quick, handy how-to for Windows users. Ever have someone send you a link via email and you copy and paste it into a browser and then can’t figure out how to download the thing? Notepad to the rescue – (da-dada-daaaah)!
  • Open notepad
  • Create html linked text – <a href=”linkurl”>download this</a>
  • Save the text doc as a .html doc (select all files in the drop down, add the file extension manually).
  • Open the html doc – it will open in your default browser
  • Right click on the linked words (download this in this example) and save
This handy tip courtesy of my brilliant husband.  Yay!
