I'm not sure what you're asking about here.

If you're asking about being able to download images/etc specified in CSS, that's already handled by your browser's dev tools, and possibly the right-click menu. CSS, the language, has nothing to do with that.

If you're asking about using CSS to specify that something on the page should *trigger* a download, then that's already handled by HTML via the `<a download>` attribute. It's not currently something that CSS is intended to handle.
