    Its possible, but not easily. You couldnt do it normally through client side code like javascript or html. You could have to write an activex script, and even then most users wont download it because of security issues.

    Hum, one simple way (without code), would be to provide instructions to you user:

    "Right click to save to desktop" -Save Target As / Copy Shortcut.
