Easily Save Web Graphics

Do you often see a picture or other graphic on a website that you'd like to save? Simply right-click on it, click Save Picture As, select the folder where you want to save it and click the Save button. That was pretty easy, right?

Well, now I'm going to show you another even faster way.

  1. Open Windows Explorer and open the folder where you want to save the graphic.
  2. Resize your browser window so that it takes up the left half of the screen and the right side (2 pane view) of the Windows Explorer window is visible behind.
  3. Position your mouse pointer over the graphic you want to copy.
  4. If the pointer changes to a 'white arrow' you can just drag (using the right mouse button) the graphic from your browser and drop it right in the folder in Windows Explorer. Select 'Copy here' from the popup menu and the graphic is saved to the folder.
  5. If the pointer changes to a 'hand', that means that the graphic is a hyperlink to another document. In that case you'll have to right-click on the graphic and select Copy from the popup menu, right-click the Windows Explorer window and click Paste from the popup menu and the graphic is saved to the folder.

BONUS TIP: You can also insert a graphic directly into Excel by using right-click, Copy and right-click, PasteSpecial, Bitmap.
