downloading in linux


Is there a way to download ANYTHING in LINUX NOT using the command line approach? A special downloader that uses EXE files like WINDOWS? Preferably without saving it first? Installing from the SOFTWARE CENTER is easy. downloading items NOT in the center is not. How to make the download to leave a desktop icon automatically? If not how do drag it from the tray or MENU list? I need a LINUX OS that operates like WINDOWS. So far I do not like any of them. They are only variations of each other. Nothing resembling WINDOWS behavior. Does such a version even sxhist?
