FIVE SIMPLE STEPS TO DOWNLOADING
FILES FROM THE INTERNET
by Bob Gollihur

If you think surfing the web is fun, wait until you start downloading files! One of the Internet's greatest attractions is its wide variety of available programs and files that can help to enhance your computing experiences. In addition to free programs and utilities, you can find demo versions of many new programs and updates of programs you already have, all waiting for you to download.

In this very brief tutorial, you can learn by doing. Simply follow the instructions we've prepared, and in just a few minutes you'll be downloading a program, opening its zip file, installing it onto your computer, and having fun!

The ZDNet Software Library is the ideal place to begin since it's the Internet's most authoritative source for software. Our editorial emphasis distinguishes our site from other shareware sites. We review, rate, and virus check each program in our collection, and produce special in-depth reports to keep you informed of the newest and best titles. We think that you'll find our library easier to use, more informative, and more useful than any other library on the Web. So get your hard drive ready and let the downloading begin!
