    Is there a way to do this in OS X? In Windows, one can simply right-click and copy the media file anywhere. Does anyone know how to do this in OS X?

    Thanks in advance!

    In Safari? The Safari 3 beta can do this, right click on the file and "Save image as" or "Download linked file as".

    Where are you trying to do this? In the Finder or somewhere else?

    Sorry, forgot to mention that I meant Safari. But I found it! It's the "save link as" option. I didn't see it the first time I tried. Thanks for the replies, the mods can now trash this thread.:)

    Isn't that the same as this? (Right click on the link-- or if using a Mac laptop, ctrl+ left click)

    I think that's forgivable, seeing as how you were keeping trolls off of this forum:) Thanks again everyone (really fast replies too!).

    You can also alt-click the link to download the file. :)

    If it's a picture, just drag it to the desktop.
