There are a lot of interesting threads that I occasionally like to reference. I used to just print out a thread and keep it as a hard copy, but lately there's so much good info on a lot of subjects that this method is no longer the most economical! or prudent way to go! So, how can I "save" threads of interest? Do you guys just book mark them? Or can the threads be saved as a word document? Help!

You could do that Prnt Scrn and Paint paste deal to save it.

I have an AR-15.com word.doc file and I use copy (on address up top) and paste to my word.doc file for all threads I want to keep. Makes it easy to help others asking repeat questions. Mike

Mike--So then, I take it, you copy the address and then label it so you know what the thread is about, right? Sounds like a good idea. At first I wanted to have an actual copy of the thread, but by saving the address instead, I'll always have the latest infor regarding the thread. Thanks!

If you save a thread as a Favorite, you've only saved a link to the thread, not the thread itself. If GoatBoy decides to reengineer the site, the link may become invalid. If the thread is important to you, save it using: File-> Save As -> Web Page, Complete (if using Internet Explorer) Copy and Paste to Microsoft Word or some other word processor
