If you are using Firefox or a similar browser, then the following should work:

(1) right click on the .txt file link in your browser (put the mouse cursor over the .txt file link in your browser and press the right mouse button while the mouse cursor is sitting over that link).

(2) a small menu window should appear and one of the options in it should be "save link as."

(3) select that option (put the mouse cursor over that option and click the left mouse button while the mouse cursor is sitting over that option).

(4) a file dialog window should appear where you should be able to select your home directory (/home/<username> where <username> is your username on your linux system) as a folder to save that file to.
