Converting Web Pages to Word Documents

Once in a while, you may want to save a Web page as a Word document. Perhaps you found a recipe on a Web site and want to edit the text in Word, or you discovered a Web page about woodworking and want to take advantage of Word's formatting and printing capabilities to spruce it up a bit. When you convert a Web page to a Word document, Word does its best to preserve the formatting in the page.

Follow these steps to save a Web page as a Word document:

  1. Display the Open dialog box, type the address for the Web page in the File Name text box, and click the Open button. (Make sure to include the http:// at the beginning of the address in the File Name text box.)

  2. Word prompts you to connect to the Internet if necessary, and then opens the Web page in the Word window (see Figure 13.6). Choose File, Save As to display the Save As dialog box.

    Figure 13.6. Word can display Web pages as well as Word documents.


  3. Choose a location for the document, and type a name in the File Name text box.

  4. Display the Save As Type list and select Word Document.

  5. Click the Save button.

The Web page is saved as a Word document, and all the graphics are included in the document itself.


Step 1 in the previous steps describes how to open a Web page directly from the Internet. You could also use your browser to save the page to your hard disk, and then open it from your hard disk. If you use this latter method, make sure to select All Files in the Files of Type list in the Open dialog box so that the Web page will be visible. (By default, Word shows only Word documents in the Open dialog box.)
