Step 3: Download an object

After you upload an object to a bucket, you can view information about your object and download the object to your local computer.

Using the S3 console

This section explains how to use the Amazon S3 console to download an object from an S3 bucket using a presigned URL.

Note
  • You can only download one object at a time.

  • Objects with key names ending with period(s) "." downloaded using the Amazon S3 console will have the period(s) "." removed from the key name of the downloaded object. To download an object with the key name ending in period(s) "." retained in the downloaded object, you must use the AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI), AWS SDKs, or REST API. For AWS CLI, REST API, and AWS SDK information and examples, see Downloading an object.
