Instructions for Making a Desktop Folder
and Saving Lesson Pages
using Internet Explorer
"Making A Desktop Folder"
Right click anywhere on your computer 'desktop' (your desktop is the screen that first appears when you turn on your computer).
A small dropbox will appear. In the dropbox, select the word 'New'.
In the window that appears, select 'Folder'.
The drop box and window will disappear and a folder icon will appear on your desktop with the label highlighted and flashing.
On your keyboard, type the words 'Sewing Lessons' or whatever you want to name the folder. These words will now appear in the label box of your new folder.
Left click anywhere on your desktop, outside of the folder label, and the words in the folder label will be set.
Left click on the folder icon while holding the mouse button down and you can 'drag' the folder to place it anywhere on your desktop.
"Saving the Lesson Pages to The Folder"
Open your browser and go to the page you want to save. (If the link to the page was sent to you in an email you should be able to open the email and click on the link)
When you get to the page you want to save, click on the word 'File' on the menu line in your browser. (Upper left hand corner)
In the dropbox, click 'Save As...'
A new dropbox will open. In the 'Save In' line, find and click on 'Desktop'.
On the list that appears, find and open the folder you made. Click 'Save'.
Each lesson page can be saved in the same way.
The sewing lesson pages have now been saved to the folder you made on your desktop and can be accessed at will by opening the desktop folder and then opening the files inside the folder. The pages saved inside the folder will be there for you permanently (until you delete them) whether you are on the internet or not. The pages can be printed out to make yourself a sewing booklet or to fold and put right in with the pattern.
