Q. How do I save an article as a .pdf file on my desktop?
The article needs to be a .pdf file to start with. Open the .pdf file and look for a new toolbar to also appear. The toolbar may appear at the top of the page or it may float near the bottom. Use the save button in that toolbar and have the .pdf saved to your desktop.
That did not work for me. However, I found out you must right click the .pdf link. Then, "save link as..." and save it to the deskptop.
