Error while copying image by dragging from Firefox or Chrome to desktop

Asked By 40 points N/A Posted on -

Hi experts,

I received the error message – “The Specified location is not supported”, whenever I tried to copy an image by dragging it from the Firefox or Chrome to the desktop.

Code: The specified location is not supported.

At present, my machine is running with Ubuntu and XFCE. So far, I know that saving image file to the desktop is a regular phenomenon of Windows as well as in Linux. I do not prefer to save image by right clicking on it and waiting for the option.

Please help me to solve the issue.

If you need any other information, please let me know.

Thanks a lot.

Error while copying image by dragging from Firefox or Chrome to desktop



A file cannot be saved by dragging it from the web browser. The right click and save method is the conventional method to save an image from the web browser. As you do not want to use the right click and save method, you can make use of the screenshot tool on Ubuntu. It is a pre installed feature by which you can take a screenshot simply by pressing one button on the keyboard. To take a screenshot in Ubuntu follow the steps below:

  1. Open the page that contains the image you want to save.
  2. If you want to take a screenshot of the entire screen area, press the Print screen button on the keyboard.
  3. If you want to take the screenshot of the active window only then press Alt+Print screen.
  4. You can also choose the area of the image that you want to save.

See the screenshot below:

Hope this information helps you.
