I want to change a URL somehow so that it prompts my HTC Sensation to save the file rather than open it.
Is this possible?
I take it that you want to download some media (e.g. .mp3, .wav, .jpg) from a link, which for certain sites will try to open via browser.
Try long-pressing on the link for the menu, then select 'Save Link'. It will then save the content to /sdcard/download as Bryan Denny♦ commented.
It needs to do both usually. Your [default] browser will download a file to the /sdcard/download/ folder (as Brian Denny pointed out) and then open it from there. It can open it directly from the browser, but it will also be stored on your device.
Required, but never shown
