    Does anyone know how to download non-linked files from Safari?

    For instance, I want to download this RTF file:

    In Internet Explorer, I would paste the link into my address bar, and hit ALT+RETURN, and the file would be downloaded to my desktop.

    How do I do this in Safari?

    If you could eMail me on:

    ... that would be great! Thanks.

    In my head
    forget everything you ever learnt on IE!

    To download the page you quoted: Open it and press command-s

    save it to wherever you like.

    If you´re going for the secret service you will need to look a bit harder when it comes to unearthing really big secrets :)

    right click it and select download to disk.... or apple click does the same thing. Also the save thing as mentioned above.

    if you paste that link into Safari's address bar and hit "return", it will download it.

    EDIT: huh, i didn't know safari could render rtf. just an hour ago i tried that and it just downloaded the file. weird...
