Part 15. Advanced Office and Web Features > Saving a Web Page As a Text File

Saving a Web Page As a Text File

After you've opened a Web page that you want to save as a text file, open the File menu and select Save As to open the Save Web Page dialog box.

If you don't like the default filename that appears, type a new name for the file in the File Name field (here, Blood Systems).

Click the down arrow next to the Save As Type field and select the Text File option from the list that appears. This saves only the text on the Web page.

Select the location in which you want to save the file—for example, in the My Documents folder—and click the Save button.

INTRODUCTION

Suppose you find some information on a Web page that you want to save for future reference. Office lets you save the Web page as a text file that you can then open in an Office document.


TIP

Editing a Web Page

As an alternative to saving the Web page and working with it in an Office application, you can open the File menu and select Edit with Microsoft [Office Application] in your Web browser. This automatically opens the Office application that is best suited to edit that Web page.


To view the file you just saved, click the Open button on the Standard toolbar in, for example, Microsoft Word.

Click the down arrow next to the Files of Type field and select Text Files from the list that appears.

Open the folder in which you saved the file in step 4 (in this case, the My Documents folder). Then click the file to select it and click the Open button.

The text file is opened.
