How to Download Files from the Authors’ Pages

This depends on your browser and your computer’s operating system, but on a Windows PC it is usually done by right-clicking the “Download …” link, and selecting “Save link as …”

Otherwise, if you left-click the link, the file will probably open in a new window or tab, and you can save it to a local drive from there.

All files are free of any DRM restrictions.
