You can tell a link on a website is for a downloadable file when you put your mouse over the link and the Status window of your browser (usually bottom left) shows .PDF, .MP3, etc, as the file extension at the end of the URL.

Click once on the link with your RIGHT mouse button and you will see a menu like the one to the right open up.
In Internet Explorer Choose “Save Target As…” and download the file to your desktop (inFirefox you choose “Save Link As..”).
