RE: In using Insert F 7, why can't we use Save Target As?

Hi, yes but there are other options that you can access by right
clicking on the link or getting the context menu for the link.  Here is
an example. =20
Lets say you are reading a manual.  Now they give you a link that says
for more information see and then they give you a link to another page.
So you want to open this in a new window look at it and then go on with
your reading of the other document.  So you right click on the link
select open in new window and read the page and then go back to your
first document. =20
Another example is lets say you have a item that would normally open in
internet explorer or play in a helper program but you want to save it to
disk.  So you right click on the link in question and select save target
as.  Just a few examples of other things you can do.  This all started
when an idea was presented to have a save target as button to the links
list dialog where as I said a properties button should be added to the
links list dialog. =20
Hth=20

But most of the things I ever download, you click on the link, then a=20
dialogue opens where you confirm that you want to download
something,then=20
check the target path and filename and/or change it to your liking, then

click on Save.  All this begins with a simple click on the link, takes
only=20
a few seconds, and I don't spend all my time downloading programs.
Maybe if=20
I were constantly downloading program files, I'd understand this=20
differently?  But as it is, it's just a now and then thing, and I've
always=20
thought this was the ordinary Windows way of doing it, and never felt it
a=20
particular burden.

Am I not understanding this?  For instance, when I come upon a link for
some=20
small application on the programs page of the JFW Lite Web site, and
click=20
on it to go through the steps described above, is this considered a slow
and=20
inefficient method compared to right clicking on them and using the save

target method?  Is this what you mean?

Thanks for everything,
Daniel
