Are you talking about a link in a web page? In a web page, linking to some website is the same as linking to some file. The appearance of Download dialog box depends on the type of file you link to.

http://addressHere.com/filename.ext

it will display image files, and prompt whether to run or save files such as exe, zip, rar, bat, etc.
