Often you stumble over websites that have a very nice or stunning background images. And that very moment, thoughts run down your mind - "Wish I could have this image as my Desktop Background". Well, doing this is not a very big deal. All you need to do is open the page source of the page you are viewing (In most browsers, you do this by right clicking on the page and selecting View Source from the menu) and then locate the path of the image.

So in this article we will tell you a simple trick to download the background image of any website with just two clicks. (Note: This trick works only with a Mozilla Firefox  Browser)

1. Open your Mozilla Firefox browser.Right click on the website you are viewing.

2. From the menu that appears, select "View Background Image"  or just hit 'w' from your keyboard.

In case a Background Image is not available on the website, the option "View Background Image" will be grayed out. I would again like to bring to your attention the fact that this trick works only on a Mozilla Firefox Browser.
