    Post issues in downloading pdf file

    Hi all,
    I have an issue in downloading my pdf document.. As it is inside the anchor tag , it opens in the same browser. But i don't wanna open in the browser,instead i wanna save to my Desktop

    <a href="myfile.pdf">Click to download</a>
    This is how i have used my tag, looking forward for the correction. Thanks in advance.

    If you just want to do this for yourself, you can always right-click on a link and most browsers will offer you an option to download the content. Or you can always use "Save As..." once the document is loaded in your browser. But if you want to create a link that will cause all users to automatically download the file, you'll need to install some software on your server. You can't do it with HTML alone.
