    What's the one-click way to download what is behind a link in IE for Windows? (The equivalent of option-clicking a link on a Mac.)

    I know you can right-click and use the menu, but I want a one-click method suitable for clicking a bunch of links in a list, like... Alt-click by any chance?

    TIA. I'm writing some instructions that I want to make Mac-and-Windows-friendly, and I don't have a PC handy.

    I'm pretty sure you can do this, but I don't remember exactly what you do. I'd be happy to check it au matin when I have a PC at my disposal, if no one beats me to it. :)

    No such method exists that I know of. I've always right-clicked the link and then clicked Save Target As.

    hit the nail on it's head. there is no way, unless you write a plugin or something

    Is that right? I thought it was alt-click or ctrl-click. But maybe that's just Firefox/win?
