How To Download And Save Images On A Chromebook

You can easily download and save images on your chromebook but it’s a bit different than what you may be used to on your older computer.

There are two different ways you can download images on your chromebook:

  1. Hover over the image you want to save and then tap on the touchpad with two fingers. This will open up a menu, select the Save Image As option.
  2. Or you can hover over the image you want, press down the alt button, and using a single finger tap on the touchpad. This will bring up a menu, select the Save Image As option.

The image will then be stored wherever you want to put it. Usually in just the default downloads folder.

One thought on “How To Download And Save Images On A Chromebook

  1. Something new users of Chromebook should also know is they have 2 places to save pictures and files. The default I believe is in your Google Drive which is in the cloud, so you can not access these offline. Second you have the option to save it in your downloads folder, which saves to your physical device and is available offline. This seemed odd to me, I think of “drive” as in hard drive, so it took me a while to figure it out. Chromebook wasn’t designed to hold a lot of memory but so far I haven’t been told my downloads folder is too full. Hope this helps.
