Using the Site

Using the Web Site

The following helps will enable you to use the web site to greater benefit, and allow you to retrieve the information to your home computer. These instructions are for the PC. I am not the greatest authority for the MAC computers.

Create a folder to keep the files you download from the “Boyd Smith” web site. You may name it familyWeb, or any appropriate name.

Any photo may be downloaded to your computer.

Right click the photo or graphic.

From the pop-up menu, select “save picture as” and click.

Find the path to the familyWeb folder.

Click on the “Save” button.

Biographies are specially designed for easy download to your computer. A PDF file of the biography is provided for download.

Open the biography you want to save.

Scroll to the bottom of the biography.

Right click on the file you want.

From the pop-up menu, select “save target as” and click.
(There may be a modified menu selection, depending on your browser version)

Select the path to the familyWeb folder.

Click on the “Save” button.
The file will be saved as a PDF file.

Downloading other pages
Not all pages are available in PDF format. However, any information found in the web site may be saved.

Open your word processor (MSWord or any you have).

Go to the web page and select (highlight) the section you want to save to your computer.

Selection may be made in several ways.

1. From the “edit” menu at the top of the web page, go to the item “select all”. This will select the entire page. This may be too much. (See next item)

2. Click and hold down the mouse button. Drag it over a word, or the entire section.

If you drag the mouse over the first word and select it, then scroll down to the end of what you want to select.

Press the shift key and hold it down.

Click the point where you want your selection to end. The selected area will highlight.

Release the shift key. The highlighted are should remain.

Move the cursor into the highlighted area, and right click.

Select “copy” from the edit menu
Press Ctrl+C to copy. (Press Control, hold it down and press C)

Go to your word processor and select “paste” from the edit menu
Press Ctrl+V to paste. (Press Control, hold it down and press V)

You may then edit and save the word processor, saving the selected section of the web page as a word processor file.
