Downloading Documents on a Computer
Sign in to https://www.scribd.com in your computer’s browser. If a publisher has decided to make their document available for download, you can save it to your computer for offline viewing using Scribd’s website.
If you aren’t logged in, click Sign In in the top-right corner of the page to sign in now.
While many documents are free to download for all Scribd users, some documents are only available for download if you’re a Premium subscriber.
Locate a document to download. Here are two ways to find documents:
To browse the community document library, which consists of court filings, academic papers, and business templates, click the Documents link in the menu on the left side of the page.
To search for something in particular, type an author or keyword into the “Search” bar at the top of the screen, click the magnifying glass to search, and then click the Documents at the top of the page to refine your results.
Click a document title or image. Scroll through the documents until you find one which you want to download, then click it to view its details.
If there are multiple pages of search results, you can scroll down to the bottom of the page and click next to move to the next page.
Click Download Now. If the document is available for download, you’ll find this button near the top-left corner of the document’s preview screen. If the document is not available for download, this button will not appear.
Select a file type. Depending on the type of document, you’ll have a few different choices at the top of the window, such as PDF or TXT.
If you’re trying to download a document that’s only available to Premium subscribers, you’ll see the option to sign up for a Premium account instead.
Make sure to choose a format that you can actually open on your computer. For example, if you download a PDF, you’ll need a PDF viewer (like Adobe Reader or Microsoft Word) to open the file.
Click the Download button. The button will also display the file type you selected (e.g., Download PDF), and it’s near the top-left corner of the window. This downloads the file to your computer.
Depending on your settings, you may have to choose a download location and click Save to start the download.
If you don’t specify a download location, the document will be saved to your default download location, which is usually a folder called Downloads.
