This is happening only when you save from mozila firefox..it even makes a folder for the page setup..
if you want to save a page on the net and acces it again make a short cut in the browser tool bar or ina tollbar that you use...For internet explorer is possible to save the whole page like a short cut on the desk-top for example ...and when you double click it ..(if the explorer is your default browser-meaning principal) its opening the page ..but only in interenet explorer..
If you want to save a picture for example ...whatever the browser is ...open it to the maximum size on the net ...right click on it ..and click save image as.... and choose location and name and save ...if the saving is allowed (there are protected content files) it will save it on the destination of your choice and as a file type you have chosen...
if you want to save a programm..there can be saved only the programs that have a download link ...and the procedure is to click on the download link ..and save file..or choose to open if you want to run it right the way..
for music and other files you have to have a download link also ..to be able to save it like a file..
for movies and music..better use a torrent client and a site like pirate bay ..there are almost all kinda files there including software and so...and the downloads are free there ..all you have to do is to download and install a torrent client program like Utorrent (click to download if you need)
it seasy to work with ...but it only downloads torrents file from torrents sites..here I will link for you 2 free ones..
http://thepiratebay.org/
http://isohunt.com/
keep them as bookmarks and you can search for anything ..music(by title or name of the singer )..movies..software ..games..
after you find what you want ..check to have seeds..and click on the download torrent..and it will open the utorrent program automatically ..and start download..it is a slow process so will not interfere with your speed..it actually depends on the seed..but its free..and usually find allthat you need..
be sure you download and install the utorrent first ..
so ..this will kinda cover all that it could be ...read careful and I hope you will handle well from now .on...Have a great day ..and please do not forget to rate me i this is helpful..!

I cannot scan my documents. I got a message from Scansnap: La destination specifiee (dossier d'enregistrement des images) est incorrecte. Specifiez une nouvelle fois la destination.


Go to the settings of Scansnap and look for save folder or destination folder. The error message usually appears when the destination folder has been deleted.

Yes you can, and I do it all the time. I copy the pictures to "My Pictures" folder. If you OPEN the DCIM folder by clicking on it, then SELECT ALL, then choose copy. Now close your camera folder. and OPEN "My Pictures" and then choose PASTE, all your pics should be inserted into "MY PICTURES". The reason your pics are deleted even after you've renamed them is because your OS is only copying them as shortcuts. If you don't want to copy or paste, next time you try to save one of your pics, hold down the shift key while dragging your pic to your folder and it won't move it as a shortcut. Hope this helps.

How do i save destination


I assume you want to save somethng to a specific destination. You can set up a file by right clicking any where on the desktop and add a new folder. Then right click on the folde to rename to what ever you wnat to call it. When you are ready to save something, it will most likely bring up documents, change the location to desktop and the file you want to save to and click on it , then save.

How to print from the internet to my computer in google chrome win7


You can save web pages from Google Chrome to your computer, just as you can print pages on a printer.

To save web pages in HTML format: Click on the wrench icon in the Chrome menu bar (upper right corner), pull down the menu and select "Save page as". (Or alternatively, right-click on page and select "Save page as"; or use the keyboard shortcut "Ctrl + S"). Then proceed to save the page as "webpage complete" (which will include images), or as "HTML only" (which will include text but not images).

To save web pages as PDF files: Click on the wrench icon, pull down the menu and select "Print". (Or alternatively, use the keyboard shortcut "Ctrl + P"). Then on the print page, pull down the "Destination" menu, select "Print to PDF", then click the "Print" button. You can then save the page as a PDF file.

You should of got an error message after it wouldn't open. Pls try to post it so we can see what happened. Sometimes the picture will be open down at the bottom of the email which you may not notice because your trying to work with the attachment. If you find them at the bottom, (it matters which format they come down in) right click/ copy/ go to my pics/ paste or save pic as/ then select destination folder. You can also click on the pic and it will ask you what you want to do. Anything that goes wrong 99.9% of the time will give you the error message. Very Important!!!
