All of a sudden I cant open photos in outlook express, I have to drag them out to look at them when before all I had to do was to double click them.Have I unknowingly changed a setting? I am running win xp.Can you help as when I gat lots of photos in an email it takes forever to open them.

Do you get an error message?

  levyo1 16:45 27 Jun 2006

yes the message says:-this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the folder options control panel?

Go to the revelent pictures, right click, select Open with, and select a program. This should clear the problem

Thats strange and I dont know the answer.

Why dont the senders include the pictures with the message then you won`t have to open the attachments.

They need to : in the new message window, click format tab, then tick send pics with message, they may have to reduce the size if they are large photos.
