thanks rdave 13 for taking the time to reply,it is very technical the link as its a quick fix for my wife and she would not be able to use the link,i have just found another solution.when you open the gmail you use the print all icon on the right,when the print dialogue box opens instead of sending to printer you just send to xps file or pdf file or whatever prog you have on your pc.by the way printing gmails works fine on my pc copying and saving with word starter 2010 it isnt woorking with word 2007 on her pc?is it a compatibility issue with ms? Thanks again and reply greatly appreciated and hope my solution helps others on the forum.

How are you copying and saving? It should be ok with 2007.

I do not understand the complication. I regularly select and copy text in a Gmail which is open in the browser (Chrome) and paste in to a word document, in both Word 2007 and 2010.
