managing Office-generated web page and supporting folder

When you use the Save as Web Page feature in any of the the MS Office programs, the default output includes an html file and a supporting folder containing image, XML, and JavaScript files among other things.

In English versions of Office, the supporting folder has the same name as your Office document with a suffix of "_files" (the suffix varies slightly if you're running Office in other languages).

Tools>Options in Win XP Windows Explorer includes an option, shown below, that gives you control over how to handle this pair. The first and third radio buttons seem to behave the same way: you see both in Windows Explorer, and if you copy, move or delete one, the other goes with it. With the second option you can copy and move the two independently.

There's a similar option setting in Vista.

Finally, my question: I can't find an option like this in Windows 7. Anybody know how to control this with Win 7? BTW, the default appears to be that the file and folder are copied, moved and deleted as a unit.

Thanks...

Great article I found that explains and solves the problem you are having.  I would have type it all here but there is a lot of information...sorry about that.

This explains how to edit the registry to allow you have the option back that you are talking about.  Once you follow these steps you will once again have your option back where you are used to having it.

Fascinating, thanks. So the option was removed from Win 7, but can be restored by hacking the registry.
