    Can anyone help?

    For some reason I am no longer able to right click on an internet item and
    choose save target as. The save target out option is still in the list of
    options but it is greyed out so I can't choose it. How do I re-activate this
    option?

    Thanks

    Without knowing what "internet item" you are talking about, what version
    of Internet Explorer you use or what version of Windows you have, it's
    anybody's guess.

    Along with what Leonard said, if you are trying to save, for example, a
    picture on a protected site, you're not going to be able to because of
    security imposed by the site author/owner.

    Give an example URL to the problematic web page and describe what object
    it is that you want to save. It may not be a file-referenced picture
    object and why you can't save it. No one knows what the web page
    contains so no one can answer your highly vague query.


    --- Posting Hints ---

    ALWAYS REVIEW your message before submitting it. You want someone OTHER
    than yourself to understand your post. Also remember that no one here
    is looking over your shoulder to see at what you are pointing. If you
    don't well explain your situation by providing the DETAILS that you
    already know, don't expect others to know what is your situation.
    Explain YOUR computing environment and just what actions you take to
    reproduce the problem.

    Often you get just one chance per potential respondent to elicit a reply
    from them. If they skip your post because you gave them nothing to go
    on (no details, no versions, no OS, no context) then they will usually
    move on to the next post and never return to yours.

    What is Usenet:

    When using a webnews-for-dummies interface (e.g., Microsoft's
    Communities, Google Groups, or a leech site using a forum-to-Usenet
    proxy), those are gateways to Usenet. Despite the pretense of a forum,
    you are participating in a newsgroup (aka Usenet).

    Regarding error or status messages:
    - Do NOT omit the message.
    - Do NOT describe the message.
    - Do NOT summarize the message.
    - Do NOT paraphrase the message.
    - Do NOT truncate the message.
    - Do show the ENTIRE message (but munge or star out personal info,
    like your username in an e-mail address but not the domain).
    And DETAIL the steps to reproduce the error or problem.

    Is there by any chance a functional "Save As" option? If so, that will ask
    you where to save it to. Depending on what you're trying to Save Target As,
    it may or may not give you what you need so check to see what got saved
    right away.

    I don't know how to get the grayed out option back; never came across it.
    You have left out too many details in order to get a good response: You
    might read through these:
