Is there a shortcut to "Save Picture as" instead of Right Clicking on the mouse?

    Drag&drop is faster
    than right-click save-as.

    but you have to have the destination folder showing,
    or a shortcut to it showing.

    You can show several destination folders,
    (or their shortcuts)
    that is very much quicker than entering foldernames.

    Drag&drop is one simple move,
    and can be done in a second,
    to a choice of folders.

    I havent tried putting the destination folders in
    systray yet, but generally systray is a bit full.

    You still have to "scroll". It's just to a different place on the screen :D

    It does stop the likelyhood of that...

    If you add the scroll to where you want to save it that's 4 steps, clicking on the icon cuts it down to two...
    :D

    It's incredible. Today I am so tired to be lazy. Lazy because I never thought to spend a minute googling for a shortcut to "save image as..." in Firefox. But today I was so tired also to right click and SELECT (SELECT SELECT SELECT) "save image as..." that I FINALLY DECIDED TO LOOK FOR A SHORTCUT and I invite you people full of judgement for other people needs, yes you that are talking from the highness of your computer science, you that decide that a shortcut like that is unuseful and that's why Firefox doesn't have it and only Opera seems to have it. Firefox at the third version and still no shortcut. Why? Because there are people like you.

    WHY DO WE NEED A SHORTCUT FOR THAT?

    1) It is not your business.
    2) If you really want to know, *******s, go to ConceptArt.org and start saving all the images of all the sketchbooks down there because someone asked you to do that. Then you come back here and write. But only after 10 hours spent right clicking and selecting "save image as".

    Is it that difficult to think to make a default shortcut in Firefox so you left click an image and press I dont know in example "s" and you shortcut all that right click and select stuff that is giving us carpal tunnel you morons?

    Answer now 4 years later come on. You majority of smart people.

    Mod Edit: remove profanity.

    Perhaps if you spent more time actually looking at Firefox and less time writing nasty messages, you'd have solved your problem by now.

    I suggest you start with the Firefox add-on BatchDownload, which will allow you to download all the images on a page in one shot.

    Maybe you can actually come back and contribute next time instead of seeing how many people you can insult.

    I reckon 97,111. How on earth do you find the time, AcaCandy? Goodonyer anyway. Keep the lifeblood flowing.

    By the way, is this forum using algorithms borrowed from Outlook Express? I've noticed I have the same problem with line feeds (CR or LF or whatever) not corresponding with the true end of the line, at least, going by the width of the window.

    Ok, I am going to get defensive now. Hey dumb&%$, what happens when you single left click on a link in Internet Explorer or Even Firefox. What happens when it is a linked image. Do you know anything about web programming.
