Once you have downloaded Wget you will want to put the Wget executable file into a directory that's in your path, otherwise you'll have to specify the full path to it in the macro, in place of the name.

In Macros:

wgetfile {
menu = "Wget &file";
$tmp = getclipboard();
exec("wget -P/mydocs/download " . getclipboard());

In Menus:
