A Little Computer Help Please

I've seen several tutorials in different places that I would have liked to save to my computer for future reference. Some of these are in HTML. Is it possible to download these and somehow view them? Thanks much for any help.

Ed

You should be able to click on (file>save) and put them in a folder. When off line, open the folder and click on the file and it should open up in your browser, at least thats how mine works--but dont count on it.Nothing works the way it's suppost to for me. Tom

One solution that I use. At one time Adobe offered a $29 version of Adobe Acrobat. This pared down version lets you "print" to a pdf file, that you can later retrieve and read. It "prints" an exact copy of whatever you see. I'm not sure if they still have the offer, otherwise, you have to get the more expensive version. It's really an awesome product.

Ed, Depending on how much time you have (and how persistent you are), I sometimes find that the tutorials formatted in HTML are too wide to print on 8.5x11" paper. I work best when I can read from paper what I'm supposed to be doing on the screen rather than flipping back and forth between windows. So, I sometimes use cut/paste into Word (or whatever other word processor you use). Have to be careful though as sometimes I will cut out a "table" and that gets pasted into the word document as well - and doesn't always fit very well.

But, like Tom said, you can save the HTML files and view them later. Be aware that if you save a "page" it actually downloads as many files including the text and graphics. So, I usually have a folder of files for each page rather than a single file.

MS Internet Explorer has the option to 'save as...' a web archive file (*.mht). This is a single file with all photos, buttons, etc. all imbedded.

Hey, that's pretty cool Doug! I remember seeing that option, but not knowing what it was, I just ignored it. So Internet Explorer then recognizes the *.mht extension and can display the archive I take it? Thanks for the tip, Jeanie

HI Ed_L

I see a few months have pasted since you started this thread...

There is what I do, first I used Netscape only.

Each morningwhen logging online, I would open a blank email, date it on the subject line. Would copy & paste url's, write a note for references or just copy & paste anything, I want to review or keep.
Frequently, I would just click, "save" as that would protect anything that was already copied.. It would just sit on my start bar until I needed it.....at the end of the day I would click close and it would ask if I wanted to save it... "yes" It was then placed in Draft of the Netscape mail program. The beauty of it was, you could double click and it would open and allow you to add or continue using for new information. It has a better spell check than Explorer.

Now I'm using Explorer 5 more, and have started using it's mail program in the same fashion. For this one you must under "File" click "copy to folder"..... and then click whatever folder you want it to be stored in, however this is a one time deal..... you get to save only what is in the message when you copied it.

So if you then add more details, you must "copy to folder" again. Not as convenient, and you will then have to delete all but your last copy.
On the plus side, it will copy HTML and pictures just as you find them on the net...great for tutorials with pictures as example....

Hope this helps someone else..
