Whether you are a business web site owner who wants a backup copy of their site for security reasons, or you just want to access online information without actually having to go online, there are quite a few ways to save web pages without having to load them on the internet each and every time you want access to them.
You can copy just the text of a web page if you’re not interesting in keeping things like images or interactive elements. To do this, just press CTRL+A, which will select the whole page. Then, hit CTRL+C which will copy the text. Next, open a word processing or text program like Word or Notepad on your computer, click Edit, Paste Special, and then Unformatted text. Only the text of the web page will be pasted.
Copying all of the contents of a web page is as easy as pressing CTRL+S. This will open the “Save As” dialog box. Depending on the browser you’re using to save the site, you could have several options. If you want to save images and scripts, look for the “Web page, complete” option, which represents the default option. A note about copying pages: depending on the network connection at the time and other variables, opening a saved site in your browser may not automatically engage all of the elements of the page, such as links and images.
