    MS Edge Quirks -- graphic file display and save as

    Please don't reply that you can do this is Firefox, Chrome or the like. I would like to know if it can be done in Edge.

    I have been bugged by two differences between IE and Edge.

    The first one is saving web pages. In IE, all I have to do is click File>Save As and I can save the page as files to my hard drive. I cannot find a similar option in Edge. Anyone found a way to do this?

    Second item: When the html source has something like <img src="my graphic file.jpg"> or this like IE will display the file if it is in the same directory as the html source. Edge just places an icon on the screen.

    For both of these, when I open the file in IE, it works fine -- Edge just doesn't seem to have the settings I need. Any clues?

    My preferred browser is IE11, but occasionally use Firefox just as happily if I have some reason to do so.

    I just had a bit of a play w/ Edge and my opinion of it is unchanged - too many things I can do in IE or Firefox simply don't work in Edge, just as you have described.

    I just tried Edge - I only occasionally use it - and you're right, there seems to be no way of saving the page (not even ctrl-s works). However, the graphic file (<img src="my graphic file.jpg">) does display. This is on one of my pages so is from a population of one! But when I open the some of my pages in IE they don't work properly - they do in every other browser I've used.
    One day all browsers will work properly - probably just after the heat death of the universe!

    Print to PDF works fine though (and captures the complete on-screen/off-screen parts of a scrolling page).

    Just because you don't know where you are going doesn't mean any road will get you there.

    I just came back to say I now have the option from a right click that was not there 1/2 an hour ago. Still not liking Edge

    There is a free App in the MS Store called "Save HTML in Edge". After install, click the Share button and choose "Save HTML in Edge"
