Welcome to the forum.

The IE.au3 UDF's are the best way to go or

(if you know some text in the link of interest)

you can use ctrl-f to find the link

winwait for the "find" box

controlsend to complete the stuff to search for

controlsend for enter

once that link is highlighted

send shift-F10

sleep a bit

then send "a" for "save target as"

winwait for the "save as" box

controlsend to complete the filename

controlclick for enter

Which _IE commands can be used to for right mouse click? Looks like _IEAction only provides for "click" which is left mouse button.

Thanks

I should have included the caveat that I don't have a clue when when it comes to the _IE UDFs... I've just learned to mention that they are always the best way to do stuff - 'cuz when I post a "manual solution" like I listed above, someone comes along and posts an _IE UDF solution.

It looks like I've not drawn them out of the woods for you just yet. Perhaps if I throw the gauntlet down a bit harder :-)

What is the site that you are dealing with or a public one just like it?

See the file naming pattern?

It is probably the same each week.
