Just in case you haven't learned the basic cut and paste technique. When you see something on-line that you want to save and reference to later. Simply use your left mouse button on hold down. Start at the end of the article or what have you and scroll up till the whole is highlighted. then hit the Edit in your browser and chose "copy". Then open your text software (micro.S. "Word";Corel "Word Perfect";or my favorite "Open Office" which was free and has an HTML editor to save pictures) Once the text software is open and the little line is blinking hit the edit in there chose paste. The text from the highlighted on-line page should be inserted into the text software. If this works then make sure to save in a folder and close your on-line access to check that it is saved as a text document (you can chose to make it a web page but I find the text more useful.) If you have trouble go back on line and try again. I use this to save many things like recipes, reviews and many directions. You can print if you want just make sure to check the preview.

This is a very helpful hint. For a long time I used to simply bookmark pages and often come back some time later to find that my version of saving info hadn't worked. Or I would print page after page from the web. Learning to cut and paste and save pages as text documents made things so much easier!

When I run into a great web page, but don't have the time to really look at it thoroughly, I insert it into an email to myself. This way, when I come back online with a bit more time, I don't forget to take a look. It only takes a second, and then I don't forget about it! Thanks for the hint about the "Open Office." I will check this out since it has an HTML editor.
