You can copy-paste, the image to your desired location.

Save images from Microsoft Word

For Microsoft Word documents, the case is different. When you make right click on the picture in the document, you will not find Save as picture option in the document. But the same option is available in the latest version of Word.

In case, you’re running the version that doesn’t offer the Save as picture option; then you can use the similar workaround to grab all the images in the document. Here is what you need to do:

1. Open the Word Document.
