Hi New to computing when trying to open e-mail attatchments I get the message "this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action create an association in the folder options control panel " I am unable to locate this ???? Help !!!!
What exactly are you trying to open? Photos, documents or something else?
Many attachments are better dealt with by copying to the desktop, right clicking and selecting `open with....` but to decide what to use you need to have an idea of what they are (photos, documents...).
I suggest you click on the paperclip, select `Save Attachments` in the widow wich opens select `Documents and Settings\`you`\desktop` and click on `Save`.
The file or whatever will appear on you desktop and you can select a tool/program to open it. The tool will depend on the suffix (.txt or .png or .jpg etc.) For .txt use `Notepad`, for .png or .jpg use `Paint` etc.
