After finding answers to most of my problems, I thought that I was actually going to get to do what I wanted to do. I have tried for a week to work this out.

I visit one website (www.ancestry.com) quite often. On their most of their pages, they have an option to save them on my harddrive. Problem is, I cannot find them afterwards. Whenever I save a page it says it has gone to a tempory file. It asks if I want to open the file I just saved. That is the last I see about the page. The page is saved as a .JPEG file.

I have Windows Vista Home Basics as my os. I need a little guidence on this one. Keep in mind that I am learning as I go.

What process do you use for saving the page (what do you click on?)?
Have you searched your hard drive for pictures or files ending in .jpeg?
What happens when you open the file that you've saved - can you see it's location there (click on Save and see where it's located)?
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

When I save the file, I click on the save icon that the site provides. It actually saves only the image (ie. Census) and not what is shown. A window come up to select what I want to do with file (add person to family tree, or save to my computer). I alway chose computer. Next, I get a window asking where to save file. My name *document*. I click save and get a window that says 'For your computer's securitythis file was saved to the Temporary Intenet Files folder., do you want to open this folder?

After clicking yes the screen goes to 'Local Disk (C:) * Documents * Temproary Internet Files *Virtualized. The virtualized folder says it is empty.

I know the file has been saved because if I name another file the same thing, it already has been saved. If I search using search in startup, it can't be found. I have used file name .jpeg, or file name only.

This may sound like the long way around...but when you want to save the page, right click on it, click "create" a shortcut (it will save the webpage to your desktop).
Now right click on an open spot on your desktop. Click on 'new folder'. Name the folder so you know what it holds. Drag and drop the webpage (or, copy/paste) it into your new folder.

You can put that folder in your Documents, if you'd like.

I did as suggested. It still went to a temporary folder. There was a big difference. I found it! I sometimes wonder if this computer and Vista are in cohoots to see how long it will take me to give up. (Sorry, I don't get out much.) Thanks
