    Google images can't get source
    I use to be able to go to Google.com and click images. Then say l00 images
    Come up of a yellow moth... I click one I'm searching for and nothing
    Happens. I use to be able to get to the source of the photo so I can get
    The name of whatever I'm looking for.

    It changed. Doesn't anyone have any suggestions for me? Yes, I am very
    Technically challenged.

    Open Google. Click "images". Note under the Google heading is "images". In search box, type what you want. I just did it with "yellow moth" and tons of pictures show up.

    I guess I wasn't clear. I get all those images but I use to be able to click on the image and it would take me to the origin of the image. This way, I can get the name of the specific moth... or whatever I was looking up. Thank you for trying.

    I just went to Google Images. Typed in Yellow Moth. Randomly left clicked on a pic. It opened up a slide of the image with information about the link and options for viewing. One button was "view page". Another was "view image". "View Page" took me to the website the pic originated.

    Perhaps you can give a step-by-step explanation of what you are trying to do.

    What you describe as your experience two months ago is the experience I had earlier today.

    Trying to figure out what might have changed on your end. Are you using any software that would keep the slide from opening? Have you changed any settings on your browser? Are you using the same browser?

    What has happened is that Google has cached the image but the source page is no longer there, the website as a whole is either gone completely or they restructured the site which caused broken links.

    Sounds like the reconstructed the site... don't understand "cached"
    And To cat... I'm afraid you're talking to a really tech incompetent person... I do things automatically but know nothing about changing browsers. But I thank both
    Of you for your taking time to reply. I'll just have to find another way to get
    Around this.

    Oh sorry, "cached" means their servers kept a copy of it.
