    when I try to download/save (Cntl-S) documents from the web they are downloaded/saved to the appropriate location but are incomplete downloads... paragraphs missing. Any idea why?

    What format are the 'docs'? If saving a Web page are you choosing Web page, complete, Web page, HTML only or Text only? The Web page, complete gets the HTML file plus a Folder of the same name with _files added with the images and other data that make up the page seen in the browser.

    I don't know what you're talking about. I am trying to download & save an insurance policy from the insurance website which should be a simple process.

    Copy/paste your webpage here, select Save to PDF.

    Convert any URL or Web Page to PDF Online

    What I would do is this:

    Install Snipping Tool. (It's free.) To do that, search for it in a browser and choose any download source.

    Once installed, open it and in its littler window choose Mode, then select Window Snip. Move your pointer over the window you want and click it.

    When the clip appears, close it (the usual little X on the top right of its window).

    A window will open asking if you want to save the clip. Press Yes.

    A standard Windows save window will appear asking where you want to save it.

    Decide as usual and press Save button.

    If your insurance document is too big to fit on one screen, in the browser window displaying the insurance doc., you could press Ctrl + - to shrink the image, then use Snipping tool again. Alternatively, scroll the window which is showing your insurance doc. and copy again, and again as needed.

    I have just rehearsed the above and Snipping Tool copied the whole of an Internet page.

    Thank you. But I'm not interested in buying software for $300/year which is FREE on my PC if I can figure out how to use it.

    Its certainly complex to list step-by step, as most procedures are, but easy to use once you are familiar with it. I use it frequently.

    Can you share the link to this web site. I would assume this form is a PDF already. After saving it, what program do you open the document with? Try Adobe Reader, if you don't have it, download it, it's free Adobe Acrobat Reader DC Install for all versions

    The best way and easy way to do this, is have the Windows Print to PDF installed under Windows Features and then when you print something, you choose the printer as PDF and it will save the pages in that part of the site you are looking at. Insurance companies have a Print button on them. If using Chrome, it should open up to a PDF page if the cards are capable of being printed from the page or opened as a PDF>.
