While browsing the internet, many times, even though we find a great image, we cannot save it on our computer because right-clicking on that image won’t work. This happens because the website administrator has disabled right-clicking on his web pages. Of course, you can use a screen capture tool to capture the image, but you will lose the quality. You can enable right-click on websites that have been disabled, but you have to either install third-party extensions or have to change settings.

There is a workaround to save an image to your Windows PC even if the website owner has disabled the right-click. The best part of this trick is that you can remember the shortcut, and the trick works without any third-party tool or browser extension.
