View Full Version : Internet explorer image settings

14-05-2003, 09:23 PM
Whenever I try to save a picture on the net by right clicking the image and clicking 'save picture as...', it only saves it as a bitmap file with the default name 'untitled'. I'm sure it used to save as .jpg and .gif files etc. Is there any way to correct or change this?

Microsoft suggest:


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."

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).

I would guess that you need to empty your Temp Internet files.
In IE,
Tools | Internet Options | Delete Temporary Files
