Hi,
First timer here. :) No questions are dumb, correct?
Here goes: where would I post a question about file conversion?

Possibly All Other Software. Post your question and I'll edit and move your thread to the correct section.

Question: Is there any app that can convert an "mhtml" file to a PDF or DOC or TXT or even a PNG? The file came from a page I saved from the web onto my chromebook (chrome OS only). It's all I have.

Google Chrome can save webpages as PDF, you can also install a PDF printer such as CutePDF and print the page to it and it will create a PDF file from it. If you want advanced editing of the PDF and make changes to it then you would need something lik Adobe Acrobat or Foxit PhantomPDF

For some reason my Chromebook is only saving web pages as "mhtml" which I don't understand. They can only be opened with an app called "EML, MHT Viewer With Drive". That's ok, I suppose, but I am looking to convert this file. Is there an app that can do that?

In regular desktop Chrome you can change the box that says "Save As"(from a right click if that matters) and change it from "Webpage, Complete" to 'Webpage, HTML only" to change the format it saves in, not sure if that option exists on the Chromebook.

In the Chromebook the options are "webpage, single page" and "webpage, HTML only"

Did you try saving as the file as both and see if one of them gives you an HTML file? MHMTL is a more complete save in single file.

Sorry for the confusion, I looked again and to save to PDF you need to go to Print and then if you go to choose a printer you get options to Save as PDF, but that's on a Windows PC so I'm not sure if that same thing exists on the ChromeOS version.

I don't know, I've never tried; but I do have a Chrome extension called "Print What You Like" and that has the PDF option. Thanks for reminding me.

I'd use PDFCreator ... (because I have it installed) ...
Anything that can be printed can be "Printed" to a pdf file.
