copying pdf files

  sillysoo 10:37 20 Sep 04

Hi, I want to copy a pdf file that I have got over the internet. I am using my home computer and want to copy the file to a CD so that I can read it on my laptop (with no internet connection). I cannot seem to do this as I cant paste and copy to word, or copy the file straight onto a cd?...I am running windows XP home on both comps. Please help....Thanks

I think you'll need to burn the file onto a cdrom.Nero or roxio will do it and there are two burning programs on this month's PCA CDROM as well as SP2 for XP.

I don't think you can cut and paste .pdf files to word (something to do with them being protected?).

This is how I do it:- on the link to the .pdf file on the website, I right click and select "save target as", then chose a location (say, desktop), and then "save" and lo and behold down it comes!

This can then be opened to read at my leisure, burnt to CD etc.
