"Right mouse click" the link
to the item you are wanting to download. You'll see a menu like the one
to the right open up.
(MAC users just click the link and
hold down the mouse button)
In Internet Explorer Choose
Target As..." and download the file to your desktop (in Netscape
you choose "Save Link As..").
Perform the same download steps for
each bonus and item you want.
Once you select "save target as" or "save link as" a download screen
will come up asking you where you want to save the file to on your computer.
You should save the files to your "Desktop" or another folder you can
easily find. Once you have downloaded the file, go to your desktop or the
file you saved it to and double click the ebook to open it. This should
launch Adobe Acrobat Reader and automatically display the ebook. If it
is an .exe file you normally must have Internet Explorer installed to view
it, and be on a Windows based system (sorry Mac users).
If it is a Real Audio or Windows Media file double clicking it should
open up those programs as well. If it does not, you either have your browser
configured wrong, or you don't have the players installed on your computer
(see the links above to get these programs).
Sometimes audio and ebook files come in "Zipped" format which is simply
a way to make a file smaller in size and or package several files together
into one zip file. If this is the case, you will first need to unzip the
file, and then save it to your system (see the info on Winzip above). This
really is a simple matter once you have done it a time or tow. If you are
using WinZip click on "Edit" then on "Select All" (if you want all the
files in the zip) and then choose "Extract" and it will ask you where you
want to extract them to (which simply means where do you want to store
them on your machine).
ORGANIZE YOUR "MY DOCUMENTS" FOLDER
In my "My Documents" folder of my PC I have MANY folders for various things.
I have a folder for:
Downloads (I use this to download files - zip files etc. that
I may no longer need once I unZip them)
My Ebooks (this is where I store my own ebooks that I have written,
or am working on)
My Music (my own tunes)
etc. etc. etc. - If you are going to be downloading a lot of info on
the net, you need to get organized. Come up with a file system that will
work for you.
In XP you simply click on the top option in the left hand column named
"Make a new folder" and then name your new folder whatever you want (you
can also click on "File" in the upper left-hand corner - if that is where
you have your toolbar - and choose "New" then "Folder"). Once you have
that done, you can choose to save your downloads to the new file.
To stay organized make as many "New Folders" as you need and name them
for whatever you are doing. Categories, projects, etc. The important thing,
just as when organizing a file cabinet is that it make sense to you, and
that you organize things in a way that you will remember what folder you
placed them in. Try it - you'll like it!
