Save TechNet Library content offline

Ever wanted to not have to scroll through endless expansions of bite-sized content on the TechNet library and just download a document of only the content you want instead?  I know this has been frustrating for me in the past and when I brought it up to a TechNet manager he said “you can already do this”.  To my shock, I asked how since it isn’t visible anywhere within the TechNet library…

After you select what you want, you can then Export it into a CHM file!
