How to download files in MAC?

macOS and Mac Apps

Hai, This might sound silly, but being a first-time user, I have issues downloading files from Safari in my new iMAC Mini. I pressed download links by pressing option+enter and VO+space, but nothing happens. Can anyone help with this?

The downloaded files are most likely in the Downloads folder in your home folder. This can be accessed by pressing Command Option L in the Finder. When you click a link, Voiceover gives no indication that files are being downloaded. Pressing Command Option L in Safari after clicking a download link, provided the link itself is not broken will show a popover with a table of downloading and downloaded files. From here, you can get to the files by interacting with a file's respective group using VO Shift down arrow and clicking show in Finder.

Actually they are already downloading. You can check by hitting cmd option l from safari or the finder to access the downloaded materials. I would not be surprised if you have 3 or more duplicates of the items you wanted to grab. See my profile where you can access links to training mateirals that might get you on your feet.

Take care and be blessed.
