Wget for Windows

Not many things are this simple in life, but running Wget in Windows is one of them. First you will need to download wget.exe from the following address http://users.ugent.be/~bpuype/wget/ . Look for wget.exe and click on it to start the download.

Once the executable has been downloaded you can either run it from the download directory. Move into the directory where wget.exe was downloaded to and execute the file.

cd Downlods


Or you can move the executable over to the C:Windows directory. This is my preferred method since it allows the user to call on wget without having to specify the path where the executable resides.
