    Teaching people how to fish is different from given one the fish!

    Bullshit? Is there any direct links offer explicitly by Microsoft? Let me know if you find that explicit link IN MICROSOFT DOWNLOAD CENTER without going through this similar trick!

    Of course, if you have no friends to rely on (sorry to your solo life-style), Google is your friend to search through sites that publish the direct download links outside of Microsoft official site.

    OK, this article is a bit too old, but I found here through Google. So maybe this might be useful:

    Put this in your browser’s address bar and replace “URLCOMESHERE” with the encoded link:

    javascript:document.location=’about:blank';document.write(decodeURI(‘URLCOMESHERE’));stop();

    For example for the URL from this article:

    javascript:document.location='about:blank';document.write(decodeURI('http%3a%2f%2fdownload.microsoft.com%2fdownload%2ff%2f4%2fb%2ff4bfd843-a0b6-4031-aa98-0a3db7403d0f%2fsaveAsPDFandXPS.exe'));stop();
    

    Or even better:

    javascript:document.location='about:blank';document.write(decodeURI('%3ca href="http%3a%2f%2fdownload.microsoft.com%2fdownload%2ff%2f4%2fb%2ff4bfd843-a0b6-4031-aa98-0a3db7403d0f%2fsaveAsPDFandXPS.exe"%3edownload%3c/a%3e'));stop();
