Saving A Picture/Image

Move your cursor over the graphic.

  •  Windows users: Click the right mouse button. A pop-up box appears.

  •  Macintosh users: Click and hold the mouse button. A pop-up box appears.

Save the image to your hard drive by selecting Save Picture/Image As option.

You can accept the current file name or rename the file. (Graphic files are usually in .gif or .jpg format.)

 

Saving an Image
Saving Text

You can save a whole page just by:

  1. clicking on File on the menu bar of your browser

  2. then clicking on Save As.

In the Save As Type menu you will have two options, either:

  •  save it as HTML file or
  •  a text file.

If you only wish to ever read the file in a web browser save it as a html file.

If you want to read the file in any text based programs like Microsoft Word save it as text.

If there are pictures on the page, these will be saved in a special folder which will be created. Sometimes, moving this folder will cause difficulties

Saving Just Text

If all you want from a Web Page is just the text then another option is to use the Copy and Paste commands in the Menu bar under Edit.

To do this:

  1. highlight the text you wish to copy
  2. select from the Menu Bar - Edit > File > Copy
  3. select the programme you wish to copy into (e.g. Microsoft Word, Notepad, Wordpad etc.
  4. select from the Menu Bar - Edit > File > Paste (or Paste Special)

Note: Web Pages often have tables in them which you cannot see. These tables are used to keep information organized. Using Paste Special, and then selecting the appropriate option, allows you to copy the text without copying the tables
