Back in the earlier versions of the Microsoft Word, getting an image stored in a Word file is as easy as right-clicking on the picture and choosing to save the image in whatever name or chosen format you would have wished. Nowadays, going through the same procedure may not always be possible.

But should you encounter the dilemma of wanting to get an image attached to a Microsoft Word file and get head over heels by not being able to do so, do not panic. There is an alternative method for it.

How to download photos on a Microsoft Word file

Step 1: Open the document, then go to File > Save as.

Step 2: Navigate across the option to change the File Format, then choose to save it as a Web page (.htm).

Step 3: Choose a location in your computer’s storage or external storage to where the files in a folder will be saved and take note of that path.

Step 4: Navigate your way to that folder which you just made by saving the file as a Web Page.

Step 5: Run the Web Page by double-clicking on that file which is attributed to your default or installed web browser.

Step 6: The site should now run with the images displayed on it.

Step 7: Right-click on your chosen image(s) and save them in a dedicated folder or destination on your computer.

Apparently, unlike the Microsoft Word document which was the source of the image(s), the generated web page does not restrict the copying of any embedded images in it.

  1. Nice tip… but there’s no need to do steps 4, 5 & 6 because saving as .htm format creates “filename_files” folder that contains all the images embedded in that word file.

    Another way is to rename the .docx to .zip then extract only the “\word\media” folder.

    Try it ;)
