How to copy text from a Web page
Submitted Friday, December 8, 2006
In Internet Explorer, go to the page you want to copy text from. Select the text with your stylus, tap and hold on the text, and then use the Copy and Paste function to move it to a Word document or another word processing program.
Here's how to do it:
You can copy text directly from a Web page and paste it into a document on your touch screen device. (Non-touch screen smartphones do not have this capability.)
- Open Internet Explorer Mobile and go to the Web page you are interested in.
- Drag your stylus over the desired text to highlight it (or tap and hold anywhere on the page and tap Select All Text from the pop-up menu).
- Tap and hold on the page (or the highlighted text) and select Copy from the pop-up menu.
- Open a document in a word processing program (such as Word, Excel, or Notes).
- Touch the tip of the stylus to the place in the document where you want to paste the copied text, and hold down on the screen.
- Tap the Paste option in the pop-up menu that appears.
TIP: There is no “Save As” function on Internet Explorer Mobile. On most desktop PC Web browsers, you select File >Save As and save the open Web page as an HTML or text document. You cannot do this with the version of Internet Explorer found on Windows Mobile devices.
