Saving an internet page
How can I save (rather then print) an internet page I am viewing so I can attach it to an email later There would be multiple attachments unless I can save all pages to one document or file, then attach that to my email.

I usually just hit share under File then mail right then but you could also hit save as under File and when it pops up to ask where put it on your desktop so its easy to find.

Some browsers allow you to save a web archive (one file) but only a few support it. Otherwise, saving a web page will save the HTML file along with any other content (images mostly). In those cases, you'll need to compress it. However, if you're emailing pages, why not just send a link?

OSSX - The SAVE under FILE is shaded so I cannot use the save function. I'll try the SHARE option but that may also be shaded.

vansmith - I'm using Safari Not sure what "sending a link" is. Not sure how to compress it, which brings up another thread. How do I compress a picture imported from my camera to send it as an attachment in an email?

"Sending a link" means "copy the URL from the address bar and paste it into your email. The recipient will see it as a live link."

Under the File menu in Safari (recent versions), there is a "Share" command of which the very first option is "email this page" which does exactly that using your default email client.
