When I right click on a picture to save it, I am only able to select bmp as the file extension, not as its orignal extension (i.e. gif or jpg).

SYMPTOMS
When you use the Save Picture As command for a
graphics file in Internet Explorer, you may be able to
save the file only as a BMP file, even if the file is in
another format (such as GIF or JPEG). The file name
may also appear as "Untitled."

CAUSE
There are several reasons why this issue may occur.
This issue may occur if your Temporary Internet pages
cache is full.

This issue can occur if you have "Do not save
encrypted pages to disk" selected in Tools, Options,
Advanced Tab and are loading the page over a secure
connection (https).

This issue can occur when you connect to a Web site
using an address that contains
username:password. For example, the server is
accessed through
http://username:[email protected]/default.htm,
instead of http://site/default.htm.

Right-Clicking, Selecting 'Save Picture As' Does
Not Save Image with Correct Extension

WORKAROUND
You can use any one of three methods to work around
this issue.
Workaround for Cause 1
To resolve, delete the temporary internet files by
selecting Tools, Options, General tab and select the
Delete Files button.

NOTE: To locate the Temporary Internet Files folder,
click Options on the Tools menu, click the General tab,
and then click Settings. The current location is indicated
in the Settings dialog box.
Workaround for Cause 2
To workaround, uncheck "Do not save encrypted
pages to disk" from Tools, Options, Advanced Tab.
Then select View, Refresh to reload the page.

Workaround for Cause 3
Method 1
Open the Temporary Internet Files directory and locate
the image that you attempted to save.
Right click the image and click Open.
When the image loads into Internet Explorer, right click
the image and click Save Picture As. The correct file
type and name should be correct.

Method 2
Type in the direct path to the image that you wish to
save.
When the image loads into Internet Explorer, right click
the image and select Save Picture As. The correct file
type and name should be correct.

Method 3
You can also save the file in .bmp format, and then use
a graphics editor to convert the file to the desired file
format.
