Reply to "How to save forum posts to my hard drive??"

You have to open the associated .HTM file, that links all the files together, see indicated file.  If you open the folder, you'll see all the individual files.

Open the .HTM file associated with the folder.



Thanks  John , Tried it no joy.  This is a twelve year old W-7 computer that I hacked software to run Nikon film scanners and Alps printers who's most recent drivers are XP.  I did not upgraded this box to W-10 when it was free. Glad about that I have a W-10 box and hate it. About two years ago after a Windows update my Document file looked unrecognizable.  However since that event I have saved web pages as "WEB PAGE COMPLETE"  and end up with two files one is a folder with all the individual files and another with the Firefox icon that if you click on will open the page you saved in it's entirety. I usually make a new folder and drag both these files into the new folder just to cut down on clutter. Attached photo of my Document file with small icons. Note the HTML folder with the firefox icon on the right side of the photo.  When I drag the courser over it I get a info box which says "File Count 207 Empty Folder" I can well understand why Alan says he does not install Windows updates on his W-7 machine. What I started doing is to use an add-on to Firefox called "PRINT EDIT W.E."  It allows saving a web page as a PDF  with subtractive editing so you can take out ads and Attaboys. Though the photos are saved in the PDF I go back and right click on each photo to save the full size version. Then I create a folder for the PDF and all the photos I save separate. It would be nice to get all the WEB PAGE COMPLETE files I had saved when Microsoft's update corrupted my document file (registry?). Everything else about this computer works fine just all these System files in My Documents.    j
