Hi Fred, Using Google, I find a site page I want to save, then save it to my Documents, hard drive. BUT, if the page is removed from Google at a later date, I’ve lost my "save". Is there a way to "Memorialize" the saved page on my hard drive? Thanks, —Clyde
It appears from your note that you’re attempting to save links to the web pages of interest, rather than saving the web pages themselves, which is what you really want. The surest method is to save the pages and photos themselves. From Google, click on the link and open the page. Using Internet Explorer, choose Save As from the File menu. Pick the folder you’d like to save the page into. From the "Save as type" drop-down menu, select "Webpage complete (*.htm, *.html)" and click on the Save button.
Alternately, if you have Outlook Express installed (even if you don’t use it) you can select save as type "web archive, single file," which puts all the pieces of the target web page in one neat self-contained file. (See http://langa.com/newsletters/2003/2003-02-24.htm#2 )
Using Firefox, choose Save Page As from the File menu. Pick a location, then choose "Webpage, complete" from the "Save as type" drop-down menu and click on the Save button.
