Saving to Portable Drive

Saving Information to portable storage (e.g.,USB drive)

Insert a portable storage device (USB/Thumb drive).

  • Go to page you wish to save.
  • Click Save As.
  • In the pop-up window, click on the down arrow in the Save in window at the top or Browse to the appropriate drive.
  • Choose the drive where your portable storage is.
  • In the File name window, type a name.
    • If you will want to use the information later for word processing, make sure the file name ends in .txt.
    • If you will want to look at the information later as a web page, make sure the file name ends in .htm or .html.
  • Click Save.
  • Remove USB drive safely.
    • Note: Saving web pages in HTML format (.htm or .html) will automatically create a folder for any graphics associated with the web page.  This can take up a lot of space on your USB drive.
