Using XP Home/IE 6. Frequently, when reading articles online, I would like to make multiple copy and paste operations to Notepad (or ?) so that there is only one print operation rather than a page being printed for each copy and paste selection. I do not use MS Word or other word processor. Does anyone know of a procedure to use or possibly a shareware program I could use for this purpose. Note: Because I do not use MS Word "Spike" is not usable as far as I can determine. Thank you.
