[Bug-wget] How to Use WGET in Windows

Subject: [Bug-wget] How to Use WGET in Windows

Thanks so much for ALL the responses.  I've taken Angel's advice & created a 
new folder entitled "Progs"

  Yet, I don't know where to put it, as I have the following 3 folders in my 
C-drive:  "Progs" "My Web Sites" and "Program Files (x86)"   The first 2 of 
these 3 folders are empty, and the 3rd one contains my "GnuWin32" file.   (I 
very recently downloaded GnuWin32 sed 4.2.1  but have not yet successfuly used 
I might also need some information as to HOW to put the folder where I need it.

 just wget http://example.com/whatever.html  downloads that
