Can someone please give me an example or idea of how I can accomplish this?

I have done this using Windows Forms as....

   SaveFileDialog saveFile = new SaveFileDialog();
                saveFile.Filter = "Text Files (*.txt)|*.txt|" + "All Files|";
                saveFile.DefaultExt = "txt";
                saveFile.Title = "Save My File As";
                saveFile.InitialDirectory = Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.Personal);

                if (saveFile.ShowDialog() == DialogResult.OK)..................................

Web pages do not have access to a client machine's local file system. You will be restricted to however the browser employed by your user decides to show a save file prompt.
