Saving a flash object...
by John.Wilkinson / January 22, 2006 1:26 PM PST

There are third-party applications and addins that can do this, but I don't know of any good free ones. Now, for some odd reason Internet Explorer does not save flash objects, but Firefox does. Thus, I suggest downloading the free alternative browser Firefox, going to the website, and doing a file->save page as. Select ''webpage, complete,'' the locations, and Save. Then, go to the location you saved the webpage, open the respective folder, and you'll find the flash object inside. You can keep it all and open everything as the original website, or you can just copy out the flash object, delete the rest, and play it using RealPlayer or the like. It's the the simplest method, but it's fast, free, and gives you a better browser too.

Hope this helps,

Doesn't work with all Flash objects
by jahan / January 27, 2006 7:09 PM PST

I was interested to see what would be posted RE this subject because my daughter had just asked me a couple of weeks ago if she could save a 'My Liitle Pony' song from a website that was using Flash and I had been trying to save episodes of ***** Duck. In both cases, Firefox was the browser used and the page was saved as a whole except the Flash object would be lost in the process (lost, or would not play).
I told my daughter I didn't think it was possible to save the Flash component of these pages for some reason (most probably because the makers of these files didn't want them to be saveable).
Any ideas?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
