Making a file downloadable

I have my resume on drop box, and I got the link to share the file. I want to get it so that the file downloads instead of following the link. I looked it up and found several links to the following line

<a href="file-link" download> resume</a>

However, when I try the link it still goes to the link instead of downloading it. Am I on the right path?

It may be more of security issue, but as a suggestion try running this like before and after and using the page inspection to look for the problems. Good Luck!

Appreciate the suggestion. I got it figured out, at the end of the link there was “dl=0”. I changed that to 1 just to see what would happen, and it downloaded.
