Q:  If I hear a sound file play when opening a website (web page)

Is there anyway to 'right click' and SAVE AS (when it comes to an audio file that plays everytime you open a web page)?

I know you can right-click on a picture and do a SAVE image as, etc.

Is there any way to do the same thing for an audio file that plays automatically?
I don't see any link for the file on the web page itself.

Thanks in advance for your time and any reply!

This depends on what browser you are using - if you are using firefox you can just right click - go view page info - then on the media tab - all the pics / sounds are there and you can click save as.

I do not think IE has something similar

Wow thanks ... I am using Firefox ...

When I did what you said ... everything listed in the MEDIA tab was either a .GIF, .JPG, or .SWF (embedded file) ...
I didn't see any .wav or other 'audio' extensions ...

Do you think the sound was part of the FLASH stuff and/or inside a .gif file?

I think that it is likley that it was in the .swf - download the swf - open it - if you hear the music, then you know it was there

Well, it really didn't work out for me (this time).

I'll close this question, and I'll still award you the points (the Firefox tip was very sexy).

Peace!
