I assume it is only the photos that you want to save.

Try

Inserting the usb device right clicking on the photo click "save image as" Then you get up a box showing your PC In the left hand panel if you scroll down you will see "my computer", left click on this and you should see your usb drive Click on that and save

Hope this helps.

Insert your usb pen

It can be copied onto a word document by highlighting what you want to copy left click and drag your mouse down)

Save the document in My documents.

Right click on this document and "save to" - find My Computer - flash drive - save

There is the facility to save the e-mail page without having to highlight it within WLM by right clicking on the e-mail by the e-mail heading - save page as - choose my documents and follow the same steps. However, this takes an image of the whole screen on which you may have showing other e-mails you have received. If you use this method be sure to show the e-mail you are copying in full screen mode so nothing else is showing.
