    FYI: This is entirely in the wrong support forum.

    I would assume that most sites don't use jpeg/jpg format anymore so the pictures you are right clicking/saving will not be in that format. I believe this is because PNG allows transparency like a gif and jpg does not. PNG is a newer, better format. 

    I did a quick test with Win 10 IE on Bing images and the first picture I chose allowed me to save as JPEG/JPG. I'm pretty sure the save as dialog uses the extension of the picture you are saving so a PNG will not save a JPG. BMP will not save as JPG.

    1. If you want JPG for PNG images, there are conversion tools out there.
    2. You can also open a PNG in Paint.NET or GIMP and save as a different format.
    3. You could also use snag-it or the built in Windows Snipping tool to create your own image.

    I hope that helps.
