I must say from the beginning I have very rarely printed or dealt with photos on my computer, so am a bit of a beginner at this.

A friend has sent me some photos via email and when you open the mail all the photos appear, you don’t have to open up an individual file etc.

But when I right click on each picture and select: save picture as, a box appears saying: The system cannot find the file specified.

I have not got a clue what to do and how to save each individual picture to my pictures so I can print them.

Any help would be much appreciated.

I'm not an expert on this but I'm not sure exactly what you mean by "when you open the mail all the photos appear, you don’t have to open up an individual file etc.".
Are the pictures in the email itself? Or are they in an attachment?
If it's an attachment it's normal to be able to see them below the email without opening the attachment, but by opening the attachment you should then have the usual option to Save as, etc.
Beyond that I leave you in the hands of people here who will know more.

That should work unless they are of a filetype windows donrt recognise Not the answer but can he send you a picture as an attachement then try thatat least the filr type will show

Even with the pictures showing in the body of the email, there should still be an attachment icon in top-right corner of email, right-click on that icon (usually a paper-clip) then choose to save.

Yes the photos are in the body of the email and not an attachment.

Thats what I meant by when I open the email the photos appear.

To be honest I dont know how the photos are sent or saved this way

If they're embedded within the message you could use the "Print Screen" key on your keyboard, then paste them into your image editor or into paint
