Save or Print that Webpage

If there's a website that has information you need, save the page to your hard drive or print it out for your own personal use again later. You never know when a website will go down forever. There was a website of cemetery inscriptions for one cemetery that after being up for ten years went "away." And those inscriptions are not on any other cemetery website. Lesson learned.

  4. I use my snipping tool... and use a system for topic with a number extension [.001, .002, .003 etc] that way I have a clipping of what is important, without alot of note taking. If the page is big... I will start with the weblink at .000
