opening photo attachments

  Old Geeza 14:45 29 Aug 2010

Hi all, I used to be able to open any photo attachments direct from emails but I am no longer able to do this. I can save them and open them but do not always want to save them, just be able to view them. Any help appreciated.

I have exactly the same setup as you; no problems in opening jpg`s by just clicking them.

Curiously, MS "doc" files have to be saved first.

resolved : It sounds like you do not have a properly configured default handler for
>> jpg-files configured.
>> Windows Vista; Start-> Default Programs
>> Windows XP and previous; Control Panel-> Folder Options-> tab File Types
I didnt have jpg associated with anything so changed it and all working again.....dont know what caused it in the first place....strange.

for anchor, try it and associate doc files with ms word

"associate doc files with ms word"

I had already done that, but it still makes me save it first.

Glad your problem is resolved.
