Hotmail email

Hotmail has changed the way that you can view attachments to emails, you now have to download the attachment, then open it with open as, but i dont have a clue what to open it as. I tried to open it in wordpad but it was all squares and squiggles, does anyone know what to open the downloaded files as, thanks.

What is the file extension of the downloaded file? .doc .jpg .pps etc.

You would need to post the document file type eg .doc .jpg etc. If your using xp and the file types are not shown you can enable it by my computer | tools | folder options | then the view tab take the tick out of hide extensions for known file types and apply.

Now after the file name you should see something like myfile.doc in this case the file would open with ms word. Post the file type and then we can find out which program will open it.

Take your pick! click here

My guess is a compressed file - see if Winxip click here can open it.

not sure if .car files are supported butyou could try winrar to see if you could read them.
