save link from Tech to My Doc's

By hmfl33498 ·
I often save the articles from the Tech Republic emails. I have a problem saving articles that are reached from a link in that email. I am saving these articles in "my Documents" in a folder titled Tech Republic how to. When I follow the link from the email to the article I wish to save . I receive an error warning saying I cannot save from the web address. I am using Windows XP. I need "How to help". Thank you

by cglrcng In reply to save link from Tech R.ema ...

Open a new Word Dcument or Word Pad Document, highlight the wanted to save text, right click, choose copy. Go to your newly opened Word Doc., right click & choose paste, then Save as..... and name the document, Choose the folder in My Documents that you wish to save it to...File exit. Even if the site goes down or the article is purged you'll still have the item....Or you could just save it as a favorite and deposit a copy in the folder, but like I just said, what happens if the URL becomes a dead link?

Hope I helped.
