Magnet links are a kind of torrent links, but a little more вЂњuniversalвЂќ: files can be located anywhere (including on torrents), and they are searched and identified by some unique key - a hash.
To download files from magnet links, use a regular torrent client. For example, uTorrent (for Windows) or Deluge (for Linux). It is on their example that it is shown how to download files from magnet links.

that there is one feature that distinguishes a magnet link from a torrent link: at the beginning of the download, your client does not know anything about the files included in the distribution.
