How to Download and Save Documents

The question:

"I want to save a copy of a form on my hard drive, but when I click on the document link it opens in my Web browser.

How can I instruct my Web browser to save the form on my hard drive instead of open it?"

The answer:

Internet Explorer and Netscape can be instructed to save a document in the following way (other browsers probably behave similarly):

Just remember right-click, save target.
Apple computer users remember option-click, save target.
