Go to control panel>>folder options
go to 2 tab "view" uncheck the following:
Hide extensions for known file types"
apply and OK
take a look the JPEG that you are trying to open. make sure they have only one extension.

I would like to automatically rename jpg files with the date and time (YMD HS) they are taken. There are a number of downloads available but free downloads have me reluctant to try any listed.

Two options for this: 1- In Explorer on top of file window, R click (View) - choose details - check - (date picture taken) - move it up on the list - close list. 2- R click on any file - click rename - add info that you wish - close option, also you can do this with all files on any window by R click menu (Edit) - select all. . good luck.

My internet explorer icon is missing on the desktop and im using windows xp

Is this the only icon that is missing?
If so, find the folder C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer (assuming you have drive "C" as your main drive). You should find a file called "iexplore.exe". If you're viewing the folder with "Tiles" as your view option, you should recognize the internet explorer logo on this file.
When you find the file, right-click on the icon, and select "Send To" from the drop down menu. Another menu should appear, and from there, select the "Desktop (create shortcut)" option. This should put the icon back on your desktop.
Hope that helps.

Have rec'd email with a jpg file attached How can I open it

JPG, JPEG, are standard picture files. By default windows XP should be able to open them. But, sometimes Email programs block those files (attachments) because of infection potential. Check your mail security settings, specifically, look for a setting that says "block potentially harmful attachments" and uncheck it. then reopen your mail client program.
