Why doesn't a download box open after clicking a download link online and how can you fix that problem?

If the link you've selected does not start a download, and the site is functioning properly then try right-clicking on the link and selecting "save-as."

If you have a pop-up blocker installed on your computer, the window may not be able to open, preventing you from downloading. Check your security settings of your browser.
