Here’s a super-fast way to save images from a web page

Have you ever seen a photo or screenshot on a web page that you wanted to save to your PC for some reason? I’m sure you probably have.

Most people do it like this:

1 – Right-click on the image you wish to save.

2 – Click Save  picture as…

3 – Navigate to the folder where you wish to save the image to, then click Save.

But there is a way much faster way that uses a single mouse click: 

1 – Click on the image with the left mouse button, then drag the image onto an empty area of the Desktop and release the mouse button.

That’s it. There is no step 2! The photo now resides on your desktop. You can edit it with your favorite image editor, email it to a friend, or whatever.

One caveat:  Be aware that most of the images displayed on web pages are copyrighted and cannot be used for anything other than your computer wallpaper without asking permission from the copyright holder.
