How do I download an audio file / mp3 instead of launching Quicktime in a browser

  1. Using Firefox for Mac or PC

    • Ctrl click (Mac) or right-click (PC) the link and then select “Save Link as….”

    • Choose the folder in which to save the MP3 file, using the dialog box. For example, you may choose to save the file on the desktop or in Music/iTunes/iTunes music.

    • Navigate to the location where you saved the MP3 file. Double-click the file to open it in your media player.

    Using Safari for Mac

    • Ctrl click the link and select “Download Linked File.”

    • Double-click the file on your desktop in order to open it in iTunes.

    • Ctrl click the link and select “Download Linked File As” if you prefer to save the file directly to the Music/iTunes/iTunes music folder on your hard drive. Then use Finder to navigate to the MP3 file and double-click it to open in iTunes.

    Using Internet Explorer for PC

    • Right-click on the MP3 link. Select “Save target as…”

    • Save the file to the desired location on the hard drive using the dialog box.

    • Navigate to the location of the file and double-click to open it in the media player.
