My understanding of the Share as Web Tool menu is that the parameter Output File does not actually specify the name of the file that will be generated but rather than name of the variable for that name??
If I enter "gobbledeegook", that actually changes the name of the parameter...
Long story short, how can I turn a download link such as:

or - if that's not possible - at least:
This is a current limitation of printing with the 3x API, which Web App Builder is based on. If you are using 4x, or Experience Builder (which is based on 4x), then this property will take effect if the application and the print service are on the same origin.
Thanks, Noah! Good to know although - arghh !! When will all this 3.x/4.x go away? Until very recently, I have been told by ESRI staff to not even worry about ExperienceBuilder. Sounded more like the Experimental Builder. So I've ignored it. I will stop ignoring it.
Tanu, thanks for chiming in... if any of my users actually want to save the file or attach to email, it would be great if they didn't have to completely rename it... especially since the Print widget context menu suggests that the file will have a name.... It's not a major issue because I can generate the file I need but it's not fully thought through in my view.
