Problem downloading repository


I am novice programmer and new to bit bucket. I have created a sample repository. I am trying to download the repository to be used offline on my laptop. However, when I click on download button only the read only file gets downloaded along with a file name Can someone please guide me on how to download the entire repository along with all the code files that are already present inside of the repository? 


Greatly appreciate the help

Welcome to the Community @Arun deep Dhillon ,

Git repositories are most often clones of repositories on your local computer. In that sense, it has already been downloaded. Using git commands like `git push` and `git pull` you can keep the files on your computer in sync with the files in Bitbucket.

Atlassian has a 'Learning Git' tutorial which you may find useful:
