Q. Why can't I save .jpg, .gif or .png images in their original format in
Microsoft Internet Explorer?
A. Sometimes, if you right-click an image in Internet Explorer and choose
Save Picture As, the list of available types in the Save As dialog box will
not contain .jpg, .gif, or .png. It will either contain both .bmp and .art,
or only .bmp. Here are two procedures that may fix this problem.
