Can someone help me find the image software I need?

by Rainbow$$$ / February 8, 2009 7:04 PM PST

Hello everyone I am looking for a software program that will enable me to double or single click individual images that I find online and save them to my hard-drive.

So far almost all that I have been able to find are programs that download all of the images at once on a particular website, or images in bundles or groups. I am looking for one for my hobby of browsing images individually, like being at an art gallery. I like to pic and choose as I am surfing. It would end up taking me more time, not less, if I downloaded all of a sites images and then had to go through and delete all the undesirables.

A program where I put the cursor over an image an it is automatically downloaded to a pre-arranged folder as soon as I double click would be ideal. Thank you.

you don't need any special software

Right click on an image gives you the option of saving it to disk.

Okay.... you obviously didn't understand my question....

YOu must think that I'm ********. Or you are...

Of course I know that you can right click and use "save as" to save images. I am trying to find software that let's me "DOUBLE CLICK" and save. If you stop and think about it it is much much much faster than using right click, especially when you view and save thousands of images like I do. It is a hobby of mine.

Not software as stated by prior post, mouse setting, highlight ALL and simply save.

That is one hard software to find if ever there is one available my friend... Art enthusiasts usually just have photo shops and other stuff not picture picking programs... I doubt you will ever find a program like that on the net.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
