Sometimes the regular cut-and-paste technique goes awry when you’re trying to save something from your browser to a word processing document, or maybe you just want to preserve the entire web page the way it appears in your browser. One way to do this is to click “File” on your browser task bar, and then chose “Save As”. A box pops up and prompts you to select a folder in which to store the file. I have a folder called “Sewing”, and it includes a number of subfolders by topic. Then you get to type a File Name for the page, and below that you have to “Save as type”. There is a drop down list from which you should choose “Web archive, single file (*.mht)”, which in my version of Windows is the second choice on the drop-down list.

Also try highlighting just the text you want to save and copy & paste it into a Notepad (NOT Word) file. This gets rid of all the web formatting and saves it as a small .txt file. I do this especially if it's something I want to print. HTH
