How to Code (Download) or Clone Something From GitHub
Update August 4, 2020: the green ‘Download’ button shown in this video is now called ‘Code’.
GitHub has become the place for people to share source code for all sorts of open-source applications ranging from simple single-file Arduino sketches to huge cloud applications consisting of thousands of files, but also other things like electronics design files or simple text documents.

If you prefer reading this video, see https://www.elektormagazine.com/labs/github-for-dummies
This page also has a procedure for downloading sub-folders of a repository instead of the whole thing. This may be useful when repositories are very large and you don’t need all of them.
Useful tip (thanks to @J_respect): on Android devices, click on DESKTOP SITE to see the Download / Code button.
