Why can I open but not download MakeUseOf PDF manuals?

Ron Carr July 11, 2011

There’s no download button when I try to download a guide. The full guide PDF opens in a window & I can scroll all the way through it but there’s no way to download it. Save as is greyed out. I’m running Windows XP Home and Internet Explorer 8.

    Right-Click on the PDF instead of trying to open it, and save as. It will work for sure

    You could print as a PDF. There are several free PDF printers if you don't have one. CutePDF is my favorite. http://www.cutepdf.com/products/cutepdf/writer.asp

    instead of left-clicking the link to open the PDF manual, try to right-click the link (not the opened PDF) and save it. Please let me know whether that worked.

      As I tried right click on "download it now", follow by click " save as", it can only be save as .HTML file. How can I save it to PDF file? Thanks Tina.
