I know I've done this before. I get on a free wav download site, find a wav file and can't save it.

I've tried playing it in a new window and trying the "file" and "save as" feature, but it is always greyed out and can't be used. Same with right clicking. It greys out the option to "save target". Do I need to change something in my Internet Options or am I just losing it?

Help! and Thanks in advance.

try to right-click on the actual link to the file ... there should be a 'save target as' option.

Clear out your Internet Temp Files/Browsing History. You may have Content Advisor Enabled. See:

Save Target As and Print Target Commands Are Unavailable

Save target as-greyed out
