In IE it is "save as"

In firefox (and i presume netscape) it is "save page as"

Anytime you go onto a website you have downloaded and saved it...the options i list just let you save those to a specific folder that wont be deleted unless you delete it.

Dude, all that does is take a snapshot of the page you are on at the moment of the button click. OP wants to "one click", as I undertsand, underlying files that are linked to on a page. I'm thinking MP3's or MIDI files.

The bikeforums site is probably in a database. If it is, you can't download it in its entirety.

Try this:

http://www.httrack.com/

There are also many other products available, at various price points.

if the pgm that Rideabike suggested you home clear. If it dosen't, just do the right click, save file as routine on a couple of files at a time and let it run.
