That way you can easily return to the image whenever you want. Here's how you do this using Microsoft Edge. Copying an Image URL in Microsoft Edge Before you start this step-by-step guide to copying an image's web address in Microsoft Edge, set up a folder or file for this information. In the Microsoft Edge browser, go to the webpage with the image. Right-click on the image for which you want to copy the URL. Select Copy (not Copy picture) from the menu that appears. Locating an Image Tag If you don't see Copy in the menu, select Inspect Element from the menu instead. From there, you can find the address. Right-click the image and choose Inspect Element to open the source code. Double-click the URL that appears under the src attribute for that <img> tag. Press Ctrl+C to copy the URL and then paste it to the file or folder you prepared to save the information using Ctrl+V. Whenever you want to return to the image, copy the URL you saved and paste it into your browser. Inspect Element Missing If you right-click an image but don't see the Inspect Element option, enable it in Microsoft Edge settings. Open Microsoft Edge. Type about:flags into the address bar and press Enter. A settings page will open. Select the Show "View source" and "Inspect element" in the context menu checkbox under Developer Settings. Exit the settings page. Inspect Element will appear when you right-click an image.
