Saving Internet pix when you can't right click

  rachel99 20:17 30 Jul 2008


I'm trying to save a couple of pix off the Internet onto my computer.
Normally I can right click, save etc & its ok.

But the right click isn't working on these ones, & doesn't allow the Save.

Any advice would be appreciated.

You could screen grab, many image editors can do that.

You can try PRTSCN + CTRL , then open Paint and select edit and then paste,you can then crop the pic to suit.

Bit of work i know,or there are other apps that will do similar.

Though obviously this pic in question maybe copyrighted restricting the right click menu save pic

If you have a wheel mouse try holding down the wheel when you right click.
Will sometimes work.

Best way is to turn off active scripting, then try your right-click again, although if the images are copyrighted you shouldn't use them without the owners consent.

Use this click here and you can capture anything you see on the web. auto-save to your My Pictures, it includes an excellent editor too.

BTW can you provide a link to the pics?

Ignore the price quoted - it is free for private use.
