Can't download JQuery

When I go to download the compressed JQuery file, a download is not started. Instead, I am taken to a page of what seems to be raw JQuery code. I don't think I've ever had this problem before.

Hi there! Yes, clicking on the link will open up the raw JS files. Just above the the download links you will find this line in the instructions:

To locally download these files, right-click the link and select "Save as..." from the menu.

When right-clicking and choosing "Save as..." you will be able to pick a place to save the JS file.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
