Hi out there,
When I download a page from the internet and want to put it in My Documents
in a named folder I get another folder & internet icon for the page. Why do
I get an extra folder with the same name as the internet explorer icon?
I'm doing something wrong. I can put the icon in word pad and go back
to documents and delete them both and the drag the internet explorer
icon into My Documents.Then I can open that page the way I wanted to
with the IE icon.
Thanks in advance
spidertom

When you save a page with IE, it downloads the html as a page name, and makes a folder with the same name for all the images and other media that the html page uses.

When you drag the icon from ie into my documents you are not actually saving the page, just making a link to that page in your my documents folder

Hi spidertom, :thumbsup: to BC

If you wish to save the page as one file, select Save As --> Save As Type --> Web Archive, single file (.mht).
There is no justice, there is just us.
