How do I save a web page?

How do I save a web page to My Documents, when a box appears with a message that reads:

'Web page could not be saved to the selected location?'

File->Save As

I should have added that in most cases I can save web pages in My Docs.
But now and again I get the above message.

You say, 'File->Save As'.
Sorry, can you expand this for me?

what he means is click on file tool (top left of page) and from dropdown menu select save as and put it where you want.

Thank you johnnyrocker - the penny has dropped!
Yes, I always'Save As' - and in the majority of cases it is saved - But sometimes, when the page is almost saved (as the sliding indicater reads)a box appears to say, that the page cannot be saved to the selected location!

I always save webpages as mht files. Quicker saves and a single file.

Save As and change the default html to mht.

Thank you bremner.
I have noted your suggestion and will try it.

Tried 'mht', still no joy.

For information, with help on one of my queries yesterday, I accessed Epson Support, and when I tried to save the web page, it failed.
Here is the web page;
click here.

I would add that yesterday's problem relating to PhotoQuicker has been resolved.

But i thought that I would throw my Saving web page problem into the arena, in the hope that I might learn how to overcome.

missjosy I have tried to save the page you link to and I get the same error message as you so it seems like a problem on the page and not on your system. You could just copy and paste the page onto a word doc.

  missjosy 12:24 08 Sep 2005

Thank you, Legolas.
yes, your suggestion is one that I have to execute when it does not save.

But it is strange that it does not save this page.

I shall look in again after lunch, and see if anyone else has a problem savin ghtis page.
