    Hi all.

    Is there any way I can save a picture from a page where the right click has
    been disabled. The option in XP where you get the save icon in the top right
    is not there either.

    You could do a screen capture (cntrl + print screen) which will paste the
    whole screen to the clip board and you can edit it (cut out the bit you
    want) in any paint package

    Or load up Opera browser which does not allow right click disable

    Press the context key?

    (On my keyboard it's just to the left of the Control key,
    the odd key without a flag)

    You can view page source and get the name of the file, then go into your
    Internet Cache and find the file by name.

    opens you can choose the media tab and save any pictures or files on the

  7. You're using Internet Explorer, right? You could use Firefox, which
    gives you more power over your browsing, such as not allowing sites
    to disable the right mouse button; but if you love IE, then you can
    save the image (in it's original format, not just a screenshot) by:

    (1) Left-click the image, and, while holding the button, move the
    mouse to the left or right a few pixels. You should see a "deny"
    circle appear as a result, while you're holding the button down.

    (2) Press Windows+D to show the Desktop. The "deny" circle has now
    turned into a "drop" icon (it has a plus sign), so let go of the
    mouse button now and voila, the image has just been dropped onto
    your Desktop in its original format.

    Easy! :)

    When I run across this problem in IE, I just go to file, save as web-page
    (complete), this saves everything to a folder, then I can simply delete that
    stuff that I don't want.

    Yeah great work. However, that's only possible if the right click is disabled. What about if the right click is disabled? Toolbar is disabled? and it's a java link? I've just uploaded some photos on > Public Library > and try your trick. It won't work. let me know please if you find a solution.

    You can also browse your Temporary Internet Files folder for the image you want. Most people who put that stupid code on their sites don't realize that everything on their site is saved to the client computer anyway.

    Go here: C:\Documents and Settings\{username}\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files

    Um... I had no problem saving pictures from that site. All I did was right-click and click "Save picture as". Unless I missed something.

    The one I got is attached. :)

    Google search on how to view a webpage's source on your browser. Once you are viewing the source, search for .jpg
    Once you find a result, highlight the entire URL, go to it in your browser, and there's the image!
