Download File from URL
There are a couple ways to do this. As mentioned, using the developer tools could work (more likely it will give you the url to the file) and right-clicking the link will work. Alternatively there are these options.
- Go to the URL
- Right-click the webpage
- Select Save As...
For verification purposes, here are png, jpg, and mp3 links. Follow them and try these steps. However, in my experience. If you already have a url to a file, opening up Chrome and following these steps is rather tedious so here is an alternative.
In Command Line
- Open your favorite terminal emulator
curl -o myfile.mp3 'www.foo.com/bar.mp3'
myfile.mp3 is what you want to call the file you're downloading
www.foo.com/bar.mp3 is the URL to the file
[Note: This works for Linux and Mac users. If you are unfortunate enough to be a Windows user trying to use the cmd line, use Cmder and this method will work or if you're a purist try this]
