    I've heard a lot about people working offline, but I don't know where to find it or how to do it. Also why would you want to work offline in the first place?

    I'm running Windows 7 64-bit, and IE8

    Duchess,
    Hello... I "work offline " most of the time .... doing maintenance (installing previously downloaded programs) testing them out, without interference of being connected to the "Internet" (so i can disable my security programs ) while installing. Also not having a connection, there is no chance of some of the programs i test "phoning home" Or another..... Reading "help files" or some other PDF, or my research documents. Hope this helps Regards Fred

    It was designed when all we had was dial up. One could download files and the go off line and then view their files. This way one would NOT use up their allotted line use.
    At one time, we had to pay per minute to have access to the internet.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Hi Fred, pleased to meet you. Thank goodness I no longer have a dial-up connection, broadband is the way to go. Since my post I have found two places I could use to work offline. In Live Mail under file and in IE8, under file. I have no need to do so, but it's good information to have, just in case.
