    Are you talking about saving pictures from internet explorer? In IE 6 (and maybe earlier versions) in internet options - advanced tab, under multimedia, you could check "enable image toolbar". This would show a little box in the corner of pictures, with options to save, email, and print.

    ?? I'll try that new tip but that's not what i meant. You know how you see a picture you want on the net and you Right Click on your mouse and you choose "Save Picture As" I was wondering if you can do a short cut with that instead of quicking Right Clicking all the time at the pictures

    How much easier could you ask for? a keyboard shortcut? How would you pick one image from the page if there were more than one?

    You've got to click the image to identify it. What could be a quicker shortcut than using the right button?:confused:

    u can setup a hotkey with a automation tool like keytext.
    then u just hover the mouse over the pic, press ctrl-alt-w (or wateva) and it saves it straitaway. the macro right clicks, does save as, then saves it in the default place

    =)

    That might work...............but what happens hen you come to something that has the same name as an image that you already have stored? Plus it can only store to one default location, then you would have to go back and move things around. I don't see the time savings???

    >but what happens hen you come to something that has the same name as an image that you already have stored

    u can make keytext add a date stamp into the name of the file. like pic.jpg => 20040301-pic.jpg. to make it unique. or use the time. or even add the website address to the name of file. with the later, u could then run a vb script / batch file to file the pix.

    >Plus it can only store to one default location

    true but if you need to save a bunch of pix, from same site, then 1st one u save manually to set the location, the rest is with macro.

    actually, thinking about this more, with a bit of work, i think its possible to write a macro to automaticaly make folders called "sitename.com" based on address and the save the pix in that folder all automaticaly. keytext is prety powerful when using the macro if / then etc. hmm. :confused:

    but if ur going to go that far u may as well use somthing like webcopier and just make it dowload all pix!! lol

    And all of that is somehow easier than a simple "right-click" and "save-as" ???

    I think you're looking for the answer to a question nobody should have asked. :rolleyes: :confused:

    BTW, the answer to the original question is no, there is no shortcut to the right click method...

    Do not forget that all the files you see on a web page are stored in the IE cache. There is no need to save it again. Just browse in your cache, when you are offline.
