Flash players allow you to listen to your favorite musical selections and even download the audio from these selections to your computer. These sound files get saved in the Temporary Internet Files folder on your laptop or desktop when you listen to them via the Internet. This gives you a chance to download them to your disk drive at a later date. However, since the audio comes in the form of an SWF or FLV file, you need to have access to a device that plays this kind of file, such as Adobe Flash Player, to hear these sound files.

Go to the web page that contains the audio you desire to download. Click on “Tools” and then click on “Internet Options.”

Click your mouse on the “Settings” tab under “Browsing History.”

Click on “View Files” to bring up a separate window labeled “Temporary Internet Files.”

Click on “Type” to arrange your folders by file type. Search for files that end in SWF.

Right click on the .swf file you desire to download and then click “Copy.” Paste the selected item on the hard drive of your laptop or desktop.
