Saving a Copy of a Web Page for Later Use

When you visit a Web site that contains useful, valuable, or amusing information, you add it to your Favorites collection, right? But clicking on that saved shortcut doesn’t guarantee you’ll see the same page. The Web site could go out of business. The Webmaster could remove the page or reorganize the Web site, making it difficult or impossible to find the page you want. The author could rewrite the article and change its content. In any of these scenarios, you risk being disappointed when you visit what you thought would be a great site and find something less.

If you want to make sure you save the information from a Web page, you must save a copy of the page itself. Using Internet Explorer, you have three alternatives. You can save the page itself as a file on your local hard disk so that you can open it anytime in your browser. You can make a copy of the page, send it to yourself as an e-mail message, and then file it in a folder along with your other messages. Or you can try the low-tech solution and just print it out. In this section, I explain all three alternatives.
