How to keep pieces of the Web for later

Kathleen Atkins

Lounge member Olleym had been accustomed to copying into a Word doc the parts of webpages he wanted to read later. But technological times have changed; many sites don’t allow that anymore.

Posting in the Other Applications forum, he asked for help from fellow Loungers; they responded with some interesting solutions.

The following links are this week’s most interesting Lounge threads, including several new questions for which you might have answers:
