How to Instantly Extract All the Images Inside an MS Word Document

There could be multiple images inside a Word document and you might need to save them all into your machine for various purposes. The traditional way to get this task done would be to right click on each image and save each one of them separately. Being traditional is totally fine as long as the number of images in the Word document is less than, maybe, 4 or 5. But what if the document has, let’s say, 25 images? Would it be possible to right click on each of these images 25 times, hit the Save as Picture button 25 times, and go through the File Save window another 25 times? Well, a big fat No would be my answer, I’m sure your answer wouldn’t be any different.

In this article, we explain in some very simple steps how you can easily extract all the images present inside a word document to a folder with a single click. Hope you enjoy!
