HTML Internet WebPages to FrontPage

Saving a Web Page to your Hard Drive


If there are no images, both Netscape and IE work fine - so the rest of this paper assumes that the HTML files have graphic images embedded.  The images will be stored in a sub-folder.

DO NOT USE NETSCAPE - Netscape does not save the images at all, so do not use it. I have not tried the newest version (6.0 I believe) - which "may" save them.


Use IE (Internet Explorer) and Word - IE allows you to save the entire web page, including the images. When Word opens and converts the HTML file - it will initially see the files as external links to your drive where the files reside, and therefore if you move or email the Word file, you lose the pictures, But - within Word, you can edit the links to cause them to instead, save all the pictures in the Word document.


Import Method

NOTE : if you want to try this - I used the following web page, that describes the T1 protocol and has several images.  So to test this method yourself, goto:        http://www.dcbnet.com/notes/9611t1.html

  1. open the page in IE and let it complete loading

  2. File/Save As . . . 

  3. Save as Type: Web Page Complete

  4. select a temporary folder such as C:\temp, and enter a name for the file, such as T1.htm
    NOTE:  the main htm file, "T1.htm" will be stored in C:\temp, and the image files will be stored in a subfolder, that is named as the main htm file, and followed by an underscore and the word "files" = so the images will be stored in "C:\temp\t1_files"

  5. open FrontPage and Windows Explorer

  6. drag the main htm file into FrontPage, and drag the images folder into the same location as the main htm file

  7. DONE !!!
