When running in IEMode and you want to save the displayed content you have no "save as" and the menu via .../more tools/save page as is greyed out.

Ctrl+S does not work either.

Please advice on how to accomplish this simple task?

@Ulrich_Bernskov Thanks for reaching out! We'll loop in our IE Mode Team and let you know if they have any insights to share about saving functionalities.

@Ulrich_Bernskov 

This is functioning as intended.

Saving a link in IE mode results in a webpage being saved from the IE perspective and will always open in Edge (since the location is not on the site list). We end up having content meant for IE opening in Edge, and want to avoid possibly incorrect behavior.

Can you help us understand if there is a particular scenario where this is required to work for you?

 

@Shilpa_Subramanian 

Hi

We have several situations where there is a need to save the content in the browser to a file.

We have an ERP system that needs to run in EMIE mode as it uses Java and we need to save output to CSV/TXT (joblists, inventory list etc)

In another system it generates XML that we cannot save as all 'save as' options are disabled and greyed out.

It is not and .LNK/.WEBSITE file we want - it is the content in the browser we want to save

@Shilpa_Subramanian We also use sites in IE mode which generate txt or csv info. In IE, we are able to save it as a TXT file, but now we have lost this functionality. We are required to select-all, copy, and paste the text into a txt file manually. This is not ideal. Is there a better workaround?

@Shilpa_Subramanian 

We use this functionality to troubleshoot the print spool output from a Web Application.

It was as simple as saving as text before everything changed from Edge. What was the reason it being turned off or removed?

@Ulrich_Bernskov 

 

We have exactly the same situation for our users!!!

Please MS 

Any update on this issue? I ran into the same problem by trying to download (save as) xml content to a file. It's working fine in IE but not in Edge (IE mode). The workaround (copying the content into a text editor and then save) is not really ideal for me.

 

@Bender67 @Ulrich_Bernskov @Navik57 @juliyus @CHGVASD Hello!  We've released a Windows Update that will allow you to use Ctrl+S to save the page in IE mode.

I believe the new policy is Enable IE mode Hotkeys.  Please give that a try!  Thanks!
