In the dialogue box that appears type in your EndNote Web username and password and click on OK

Then under EndNote Web in the Group pane, click on transfer …

      After a little while this dialogue box appears

Then select Transfer. You may be prompted to enter you password and user name. Then the references will transfer into your desktop Endnote
