    most simple solution - simply drag and drop in desktop or any other folder..

    Oh and the other way of doing it would be to drag the image to the URL bar, then use the File > Save menu to save the image.

    You can actually click and drag images from many browser windows straight onto your desktop or into another folder. Try it! :)

    It's likely the web page has disabled right click - many websites are doing that these days. There's an easy workaround.

    In your browser menu, find "view source" (for Chrome it's under the "Tools" menu item, not sure about IE). Find the picture that you want to save in the HTML, copy the direct picture link, and paste it into the URL of a new browser tab.

    Once the picture comes up, right-click and save.

    Do not use the above to steal copyright photos or images. Only for personal use.

    I can think of three ways:

      Repair the right button, or get a working mouse

    1. Remap a key to right-click for you
    2. Use accessibility features built into Windows & browser

    The first one is self evident, and the third is awkward. As for remapping, see the recent article
