How to Save Images in Right Click Disabled websites In Chrome

Grabbing images from websites is usually a piece of cake – just right-click and save. But here’s the plot twist: some sites play hard to get by blocking your ability to copy text or images, especially if they fear it might end up somewhere it shouldn’t. A classic move is disabling the right-click feature. But fear not, there’s a nifty workaround for that.

Quick Tip: Before Diving In

Before diving into the method below, give this a shot: Shift-Right click on the image, then do it again. Look out for the “Save Image As” option in the context menu. If that doesn’t do the trick, then let’s explore the alternative method below.

How to Save Images 

Step 1: Begin by navigating to the website containing the image you want to save. Right-click on any blank space on the desired page and select “Inspect” from the expanded menu. Alternatively, press Ctrl+Shift+I to access the Developer Tools window.
