Save Picture As... (HTML Page Problem)

  Azrael 23:52 13 May 2004

The problem seems to occured itself.. nothing major but annoying...

Recently when on a web page, if theres a picture I like and I "Right-Click" > "Save Picture As..."
I'm only given the option of BMP with the file name as untitled....whereas before:
I'm sure I had the orginally picture name as the file name, and at least be able to save the picture by its orginal file type....

An example of which is... I was on a avatar site the other day and saw a cool animated street fighter ryu avatar... I Right-Clicked the went to "Save Picture As..." But i only had the option of BMP and the default file name was untitled.....

Can anyone solve this annoying "little" problem

many thanks if u can

Clean out your temporary internet files, go to tools in internet explorer, internet options, and click delete temp internet files this should solve problem

It depends who how the web site is created it May be done to stop you doing what you want Like © I was on one yesterday and you could not save the address and paste not select and copy any of the site

Reviving my orginal post... I have now noticed that this problem arrises much more frequently then ever before... What maz2 & Salinger suggested worked... But only for a short while ( a matter of a few days) This may be because I leave my PC connected to the net most of the day to allow my internet connection to be shared (modem is usb powered!!)

Additionally... When I go to:
Tools>Internet Options... Delete Files... explorer crashes and i have to use end task to get rid of it.. I suspect this is why my temp files fill quickly as im only deleting a few before it crashes...

Can anyone guess whats up from this info, if not i can provide more info!
