Anyone can download the files that are posted to a stand-alone forum or a public community forum.

About this task

Adding an attachment can be a good way to share information with other people in a discussion or to include supplemental data that is too long to cover in the body of a post. When you have access to a forum, you can download any of the attachments uploaded to the forum by you or other users.


To download a file attachment...

  1. Open the forum topic containing the attachment that you want to download.

  2. Click the file name and then select whether you want to save or open the file.
