If you choose the Complete option, you may see more supporting files than the ones that are downloaded when you use the Menu icon.

Here are the shortcuts for saving a web page in Chrome:

  • For Chrome OS and Windows, use Ctrl+S.

Select the destination and format in the window that opens to save the file to your computer.
