In HTML, we have anchor tag which is used to create links. We create links by,

<a href="www.google.com">

If we want to download files whenever user clicks on a link we will use ‘download’ attribute in ‘anchor tag’. We can download various files like .pdf, .docx, .jpg etc. various different files.

We will make use of download attribute as follows,

<a href="images/logo.jpg" download>Download image</a>

Whenever we will click on Download image link, it will download the logo.jpg in your system.

HTML Code

Note: Here, I used CSS to format the page.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
	<head>
		<title>My download page</title>
		<style>
			body{
				margin:0px;
				padding:0px;
			}
			h1{
				text-align:center;
				font-family:Georgia;
				color:#ffffff;
				margin:auto;
			}
			.bgimage
			{
				background-image:url('https://cdn.pixabay.com/photo/2017/10/28/23/05/background-2898451_960_720.jpg');
				background-size:cover;
				background-position:center;
			}
			.section{
				background-color:#FFEFD5;
				background-size:cover;
				text-align:center;
			}
			a:link{
				color:black;
				font-family:Georgia;
				font-size:15px;
				font-weight:bold;
			}
		</style>
	</head>
	<body>
		<header class="bgimage">
		<h1>Download Files Page</h1>
		<div class="section">
		<a href="resume.docx" download>Download Resume</a>
		</div>
		</header>
	</body>
</html>
