    your angular code can not write to the file system except via local storage. the most common trick to save a blob, is to convert it to a data url, and assign as the href of an anchor. then javascript can cll the click event. (requires browser support data url navigation). 

    the other common approach is anchor navigation or a browser form post to target="_blank", and the server return the file as an attachment.

    let a = document.getElementById('downloader');
    if (!a) {
       a = document.createElement('a');
       a.id = 'downloader';
       a.target = '_blank'; 
       a.style.visibility = "hidden";
    a.href = 'https://localhost:44396/api/ApprovalQuality/download?fileName=' + input;
