I found this at another forum, it's pretty handy when you want to directly link to a download, but don't know how. Instructions:
1. Visit the site that has the download.
2. Right click on the link that takes you DIRECTLY
to the download.
3. Select "Copy Shortcut
4. Paste the direct link to the file/program wherever you choose- a bulletin board, IM message, chatroom, or anywhere else you would like.
If you follow these 4 easy steps, this will save you the trouble of having to manually type the address out, since when the file comes up for download the address bar pops up too fast to copy and then immediately goes away and is replaced by a 'file download' box.
Just a little trick for saving time, I didn't know how to do this until recently- its pretty neat
