    What browser are you using. In IE7 on Vista I can right-click a picture in a
    Web page and choose Save Picture As to save it. I can also copy-and-paste a
    picture from a Web site rignt into a folder, for that matter. It wouldn't
    really make sense to try to copy and paste a Web page directly to a folder.
    You'd have to paste it to an app like Word. Better yet, choose File > Save
    As and save it to a folder as a .mht or .html file. You can definitely do
    that in IE7 on Vista.

    The name of the browser you're using is under or on the icon you use to open
    the browser. And it's also in the upper left corner of the browser window.
    Maybe if you can give us an example of what you're trying to save or copy,
    and from where, someone could figure it out. Because for sure there's
    nothing in Vista that would prevent you from saving or copy/pasting Web
    content in Vista. It's no different from any other OS in that regard.

    well theres no website or page in particular. its all web pages and pics. if
    i right click on a desktop icon it will highlight all the options but when i
    am on a webpage and right click on a pic the only option it will let me
    highlight is the very top one but you have to be at the very top of it before
    it will highlight it. all other options it won't highlight.
