3 ways to extract Images from Word Document without using software

RECOMMENDED: Click here to repair Windows problems & optimize system performance (

Microsoft Word allows us to insert images easily and without reducing any resolution. We might come across a situation where we want to share only images and not the entire
document, or you might have deleted all images from your Windows PC and want to get them back from the Word document. Normally, what everyone would do is right-click on
the image and select “Save image as”, but that is a time-consuming and tedious task. In this article, I will let you know of three ways to extract all images from Word document in an
easy way without the need of any special tools or 3rd-party software.

Extract Images from Word Document

There may be other ways to extract all the images from a Word document, but here are the 3 best ways to do it. So, let us start without any ado.

1. Save the Word Document as Web Page

This is one of the easiest methods to extract all images from Word document. We will save the Word document as a Web Page and it will extract all images as a batch.

Open the Word document from which you want to extract all images. Now, click on the “File” button on the top left of the document and select “Save As”.


Select the location where you want to save and give the meaningful name. Now, under “Save As” dropdown, select “Web Page”.


You will also see “Web Page, Filtered” but do not select it as it may reduce the resolution of images. Click on “Save” button to save the Word document as the Web Page.

Go to the location where you have saved the document and you would see ‘.htm’ file and the folder with the given name will be created.


Open the folder and you could see all the images listed there. Copy all these images to any folder you like.

2. Change the extension from ‘.docx’ to ‘.zip’

This method to extract all images as a batch from the document is so simple that all you need to do is rename the extension of the file from ‘.docx’ to ‘.zip’.

Select the required document, right-click on it and select “Rename”.


Now, change the extension from ‘.docx’ to ‘.zip’ and hit Enter. It will show you this dialog box, but do not worry and click “Yes”.


Use any of the zip extraction software ( like 7-Zip, (
download-windows) WinRAR, etc, to extract this zip file. Give the location where you want to extract the zip folder.


Now, open the folder you have extracted and go to Word > Media.

Now, in the ‘media’ folder you will find all images which you can copy to another folder if you want.

UPDATE: You may just right-click the Word file and use 7-zip to extract the images.

3. Copy and Paste Method

This method is not as good as the above two, but it would be very helpful when you want to extract one or two images only.

Right-click on the image and select “Copy” from the options. The size and resolution of the copied image will not be affected.

Now, open any image processing tool like Paint, Photoshop or GIMP, but here I would use the default tool called “Paint”. Open Paint, paste the image and press “CTRL+S” or click
Save button to save the image.


These are some of the ways to extract images in a Word document as a batch.
