Toolkit Downloads

The Toolkit lists a wide variety of documents for download. Clicking the Download button for a Toolkit item will usually result in a dialog asking you where you would like to save the document.

In some cases, your browser settings may dictate the save location for you, and the browser will not ask. In these situations, a link to the downloaded document may show up at the bottom of the browser (Chrome) or in a separate downloads dialog window (Firefox). Click the link to open the document, which you can then save to another location, if desired, or print.

A Note About PDF Files

The Toolkit downloads may come in any of a number of file formats, but they are primarily PDF documents. Many current browsers like Chrome and Firefox now include a built-in PDF viewer plugin by default. In these cases, if the Toolkit document is a PDF file, it should open within the browser, and from there you should be able to locate save and print buttons.

However, if you experience problems viewing PDF documents in your browser you may want to attempt to force a download of the document so that you can open it within the Adobe Acrobat Reader software installed on your computer.

To force a download, right-click the Download button and choose the "save as" option from the resulting popup menu. You will then be able to specify the folder where the document is saved, and you should subsequently be able to double-click the file in that location to open it in Adobe Acrobat Reader.
