At least in SkyDrive the Download button really starts download instead of opening it on browser, regardless if the filetype is supported on browser or not.

In my opinion the best solution would be to upload podcasts in original format to SkyDrive.

I agree, a left click download button sounds ideal in these circumstances. A Guy

Zip files are natively supported from within every OS and don't need any third party software to extract them. If Windows Explorer can run, he can access the files. If Windows Explorer can't run, then downloading the files is the least of our problems

The download button worked with left click just now. It's just a pain I have to email the web site every time I wish to download. They're probably not accustomed to people downloading from crippled PCs.

Haven't tried that. But the Context Menu key does nothing. Since I need to get back into programming anyway it seems the best solution is to acquire a laptop and just use their WiFi.

would be interested to see if you eventually tried the alt,shift and num lock workaround. and whether the IT guy had overlooked it.
