Question about Gateway 835GM (835GH) PC Desktop

1 Answer

Downloads from email

When I download a picture that is enclosed in an email, (ie: I see it in the body of the letter) and I choose to right click and "save picture as..." I get the drop down menu with the box of file type choices. It used to have bmp, jpg, gif and ani or animated gif. Now it only allows me one choice and that is bmp. It is so aggrivating. I can't download as jpg and I can't download cute little animated gif files like I used to. I have searched and searched and cannot find a solution. I have checked everything in control panel. and looked under "Tools" in the tool bar. What can I do?? Linda

    Very helpful in that is specifically addresses the problem I have. But I have not truely been able to correct the problem even though I went to tools and then to options and did all the suggested changes. However one of the work arounds does allow me to download the picture as a jpg. I have not tested yet if I can download GIF or ani.

    Thaks so much for the information. I feel better knowing it is not my PCs problem but a microsoft problem. Perhaps one of these days they will actually fix it. Thanks again. Linda

Microsoft knows of the issue and has a fix or work around, when the cache memory is full the options to save are limited.

    Free operating systems are great. Boot from a cd, plug in a flash drive to save settings, don't even need a hard drive.
    Linux welcomes people to hack in and fix bugs, Microsoft makes it illegal. I had to terminate a subscription to rhapsody because Media player 11 wants to sync and I am not using anything, so it takes me 5 minutes to cancel the sync just to hear music, now it is so integrated in the MP11 I can't use it either.

How do I download pictures from a SD card to my computer?

With the SD card plugged into the computer, go to "My Computer" if XP, "Computer" if Windows Vista or 7, or "This PC" if Windows 8.

You should see the SD Card listed as a drive with a letter like D: or E:, double click it, then look for your pictures on the SD Card, hint - they may be under a folder called DCIM.

Once you find your pictures, highlight them and right click, choose copy, then click "Pictures" on the left side in the folder tree, and right click the space to the right where your pictures are located. Click paste.

That should put your pictures into your "My Pictures" folder.

How to attach pictures to appear in Yahoo mail

Some are having a hard time emailing a picture to recipients using yahoo email. They want the exact picture to show in the body of the message but somehow cannot do it and end up just attaching the image as file.

The fact is, you can only be able to place pictures which is already uploaded in the internet. In other words, the image that you want to place inside the body of the email should have a static URL or the exact web address of that particular image file. To explain this further, open your yahoo email and compose a new email.

Take for example you're going to insert this image in the body of your message:

You need to select the image to HIGHLIGHT the picture. Click at the end of the image and drag to the left to highlight the image just like what is shown below.

Once the image is selected, press ctrl + c to copy. Do not right click on the image to choose copy because that wont work.

Now, go back to your new message in your yahoo mail and right click on the area where you want to paste it and then choose paste.

That's it!

This depends of the email client you are using. If they are sent as attachments then save those attachments or download them to your hard drive. If they are embedded in the email then you will want to right click on the pictures and choose 'save as'.
Once the pictures are in the desired folder you can right click on the file again and choose 'rename' This will give you the option to name the picture anyway you like.

When I take photos I can't figure out how to get the byte size down to send on email. Right now the email photo I send is huge and takes a lot of time to download. Help.

I'm assuming you have a PC. Just right-click on the picture you want to e-mail. From the list that appears, choose e-mail recipient. A new window will open and give you the options to send the picture at different sizes. Choose one and your e-mail will open with the photo attached.

After I have downloaded an image from my Logutech camera, I would like to send this as ane-mail attachement. how do I do this please.

Most people store their pictures in the My picture folder which is located in My Documents. You must also consider the size of the file before you send it. A large picture can take along time to download and the person you are sending it to may not happy about that. For example pictures taken from a 7 mega pixel digital camera can be huge and must be resized. Sometimes your email program will ask you if you would like to make your picture smaller to send.
