Downloading questions     [text-only version for printing]

1. What do I have to do to download something from the Internet?

You will need a flash drive or CD

Flash Drive

  • Insert the flash drive in USB port (note the location of the flash drive : D:, E:, etc.)
  • Give your file a name (or just accept what it is already called in the FILE NAME box).
  • In the SAVE AS TYPE box you can save the file either as a text or as an HTML file. Text is a plain vanilla ASCII file, HTML will preserve the look of the Web page.  Not all images will be saved, however.
  • Lastly, change the SAVE IN box at the top to the flash drive (D:, E:, etc.). This will save the file to your flash drive.

CD

  • Insert the CD in the DVD/CD drive (note the location of the DVD/CD drive : D:, E:, etc.)
  • Give your file a name (or just accept what it is already called in the FILE NAME box).
  • In the SAVE AS TYPE box you can save the file either as a text or as an HTML file. Text is a plain vanilla ASCII file, HTML will preserve the look of the Web page.  Not all images will be saved, however.
  • Lastly, change the SAVE IN box at the top to the DVD/CD drive (D:, E:, etc.). This will save the file to your CD.

2. Where can I print up my downloaded file?

  • You can print WORD and EXCEL documents from the Library Internet Workstations. To do this you need to have a copy card with enough credit on it to complete your job. To determine the number of pages in your document, click on "Print Preview" under FILE and it will show a thumbnail of each page.
  • For other locations on campus that have Internet access and printing facilities, click here.
