Download Files from the Command Line

You can easily download files from the web using the Linux command line. This allows you to keep a file download going without having a web browser open. Here’s how you do it:

wget http://website.com/filetodownload.png

Just replace “http://website.com/filetodownload.png" with the location of the file you want to download. For example, if you want to download a file named image.png from example.com using the command line, you would issue this command:

wget http://example.com/image.png
