I am having some computer trouble and I need to download an attachment that a poster included in his/her post. How do you do it? Here is the post/example:

Attached File(s)
Attached File vgaoem.fon ( 5.05k ) Number of downloads: 6


I need to save the vgaoem.fon file but right-clicking and "saving link as" just saves it as a html file (which isn't the file I need). Saving the "Attached File" link does the same thing.

I know this sounds stupid but how do you download attachments in a person's post?

you should just have to click on the file listing in the page (where it's underlined) that should give you the option to save it...could i have a link to the specific topic you're talking about?

This is the actual thread: http://www.geekstogo...=3655&hl=vgaoem

The post is the fourth one down by admin. Which link do I click? Do I just left-click it or right-click and "save link as"?
