Little trick: save a picture by drag and drop

2/6/08 6:14 PM
If you're on a webpage, you typically save a picture by right-clicking and choosing "save as...". However you can just left-click a picture and then drag and drop the file on your desktop (or in a folder). Windows (XP) only, or does the Mac have this as well? As a bonus: you can drag a picture to a folder in the task bar to throw it into that folder. Or to an empty spot on your taskbar to drop it on the desktop again, if you start from a maximized browser window. More from me at
You either have JavaScript turned off or an old version of Adobe's Flash Player.
