I have done the preview FixPix.inf. However when I try to associate a Microsoft Photo editor with a jpg I lose the preview and Photo editor opens on selecting a jpg but is blank. I use win98 IE5.5 .

I think you may not have had an answer, because I, for one, don't know what you're saying.

What does "I have done the preview FixPix.inf" mean??

At least you'll get back to the top of the list.

In folders I wasnt getting a preview picture. The fix for this being FixPix.inf. I have done this but,,,,,when I try to associate a Microsoft Photo editor with a jpg I lose the preview and Photo editor opens on selecting a jpg but is blank. I use win98 IE5.5 . But,,,,, I now have the preview.

So your problem is cleared, or only the preview part of it??

If you open Photo Editor, then use the file menu to find and open a file, does it work then?

Yes, but I want to go from the file menu.

OK - now we know where the problem likely is - in the definition of the association.

In Explorer, go to Tools - Folder Options - File Types. Look down the registerd file types for the entry for JPG files.

Go into the edit section for Opening the file - it should look like

"C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\PhotoEd\PHOTOED.EXE" "%1"

Complete with all the quotes, exactly as is.

It's the bit at the end "%1" which makes it open when you double click on the file you have selected - so if this is not there, or incorrect, then amend it.

Then try again.

PS - do the same for files of type JPEG if you also have this entry in the file type list.

I was missing the end , "%1" ....

How very good of you to have shown the patience that you did.
