How to Create an MHT File

By Tammy Clevenger

A file with the MHT file extension is a MHTML Web Archive file that is created in and used by Microsoft Office applications and Internet Explorer. The MTH file is an archive of a saved Web page, along with all components on the page, such as graphics and emedded objects. MHT files are treated as a single file and accessed by creating a hyperlink to the MHT file. Create an MHT file in the Microsoft Office Word word processing program.
