Windows 7: How to downoad podcast in IE when right click disabled?

How to downoad podcast in IE when right click disabled?

I'm on a library computer. The IT guy has totally disabled right click of the mouse. It's very frustrating because podcasts I wish to download assume you can right click to Save Link As... and just download the mp3 file. But I can't right click.

Anyone know a work-around?

Other things I cannot do include running any other browser, such as FF. Running any program from a USB etc..

It's pretty much IE and Notepad is all we get to use.

Wow, that's a tough one! Anything I could think of requires right click as a step, defeating the purpose! Images there may be a workaround, but files...

I hope someone comes up with something because I wracked my brain trying to think of something. Posted for the gurus, if anyone would know, it's our group.

boohbah, would this be obvious to the library IT person, if it would be what would Miles have to do to reverse it?

I had thought of a registry value change, but regedit is probably off limits.

It sounds like Miles wants to save these downloads. What about left click and dragging the podcast to the optical drive to copy it? But then again Explorer is probably also off limits.

Miles, what about asking the IT guy if you could help him out with the PC's? He might relax the restrictions for you

It's likely the pc is locked down to prevent the ease of access settings too, but it is a great suggestion. If it is a smaller library, the librarian may help and download on a locked down machine. A Guy

Especially if Miles becomes a lifetime member.

For any direct link to a file, if you hold Alt then left click on it, it will download it rather than open it in the browser

Try it with this .reg file:


https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...yrod12/Fix.reg


Left click on it and it will display the text in your browser, Alt+Left Click will download it.

In Opera Alt+ Left click opens in browser. Can't tell about IE or FF as Alt + Left Click results in Roboform trying to create a login

Oops! I read it about another browser (can't remember which one), then tried it in Chrome and made the wild assumption that it was a global thing.

It may work in IE, I just can't confirm either way

IE (No add ons) opens in browser.
