saving pictures

i am trying to copy a picture which i know is a jpeg by right clicking on the mouse. In the window it says save as *.bmp. why is it trying to save it as a bitmap when it isn't.

win xp

Thats the Win XP Default all you need do it alter the file type then save after giving it a file name of course..

in the 'save as type' there is only *bmp and not the other options as you would expect. in my experience when you click and copy the pc automatically recognises the picture as a gif or jpeg etc. is that right?

This is a recognised problem with IE when the cache gets bloated - Just go to internet options and "Delete files" in the temporary internet files option. That should clear it.
