I have files with the format as SWF, a PNG or an MP3 or somthings, instead of displaying them on Google Chrome, I want to directly download the files to my PC. Sometimes this also happened on Firefox browser but I can not figure out how to make them work as what I wanted. There is a way to do this? I just can't find it by googling and need your tricks.

You can create lines of code in your .htaccess file of your server to force a download of a particular file type from the server (in this example it is for mp3 file types):

Code:
<FilesMatch "\.(?i:mp3)$">
  ForceType application/octet-stream
  Header set Content-Disposition attachment
</FilesMatch>
