How Do I Download Files?

Q: I am new to computers and do not know how to fully download your files. Can you assist me?

A: Downloading files is not difficult. Let's give it a try, OK? Here's a real life example that works...

1) If you don't have a temporary directory on your hard disk yet, create one now before you start this process. Create a new directory/folder on your C: drive and call it DOWNLOAD. Here's how... If you are using Windows 3.1, you can use File Manager to create a new directory. Simply choose "File | Create Directory" and then type "C:\DOWNLOAD" If you are using Windows 95, double click on "My Computer" on your desktop. Then double click on the "C:" drive icon. Then choose "File | New | Folder". When you are prompted for the name of the new folder, type "DOWNLOAD" (exclude the quotes).

2) Fire up your Web browser, and surf to: At the bottom of this page, click on the animated diskette image found at the bottom of the page.  This will take you to the download page for this program.  Click on the "Download now" button at the bottom of this page.

3) After a few seconds your Web browser will prompt you to save the file. Make sure that you place the file in the C:\DOWNLOAD directory that you created earlier (see step 1). It will be to this directory that your browser will save the file.

4) After a few minutes the file will finish downloading, and you will find KJDICT14.EXE on your hard disk drive in C:\DOWNLOAD

5) Use File Manager, or Explorer, and click until you find the C:\DOWNLOAD directory. Once you are there, double click on the KJDICT14.EXE file, and the rest should be self explanatory. The program will install itself!

6) Enjoy!
