Saving or Printing Images in Web Search in FTM 2017

How do I save or print images in Web Search in Family Tree Maker 2017?

Though the web search in Family Tree Maker allows you to navigate through Ancestry, many of the functions therein (such as printing or saving information to your Ancestry tree) do not work as well as they do when accessed directly on Ancestry. This is because the browser Family Tree Maker uses is not a full featured browser and can’t handle much of the complex coding that powers Ancestry.

If you find yourself unable to use various functions on Ancestry through Family Tree Maker, we suggest opening a new browser window and completing your task there. This can be done by clicking the Browser Options button and selecting Open in New Window.

This will open the page you were looking at through Family Tree Maker's web search in your default internet browser.
