downloading GEDCOM

When I'm on MyFTDNA, I see a message: " You have not yet uploaded your GEDCOM. Enter your genealogical information to help you connect with others."
Does anyone know WHERE one can download this GEDCOM-software?

Well there are several family tree programs out here.
Here is a link to some favored here

There are free ones , I have tried a few but dint care for them
Perhaps someone else can post a link for a free program .
At any rate you use this type of software to develop your family tree.
When you finish you use the software to export it to a Gedcom file - unless of course the software is already saving itself as a Gedcom .
A Gedcom file is similar to a text file when using a word processor.
In that it is a standard for all family tree software programs.
Anyway after saving your work as a Gedcom you then upload it to FTDNA
