When I right-click a page and select 'copy' where does the copy go on my computer?

Posted

I'm just trying to copy the page but I don't know where it goes. I'm assuming that's what the copy function is for?

Copy means to copy something to the clipboard. If there's any selected text, for instance, that text will copied. Depending on where you click, you can copy images and links to the clipboard.

To copy a page to your disc drive, you use the Save Page As... function on the right click menu.

Note that you will not see the Save Page function on the right click menu if any text is selected (highlighted) on the page or if you right click on an image.
