How can I save...

How can I save part of an email to my desktop?

Technician's Assistant: Who is your email provider (Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook, etc.)?

Gmail

Technician's Assistant: How do you usually access Gmail? On a phone or tablet, or through a web browser?

Web browser

Technician's Assistant: What troubleshooting have you tried?

Nothing really. Just did a search for an answer but didn't see anything that looked right.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Email Expert to know before I connect you?

I tried to install open office so I could possibly save it to their word processor but there is some kind of a file blocking that.
