Downloading pictures from email.

When I right click to "Save picture as" I no longer get the choices of jpg, bmp, gif or ani. I only get one choice which is bmp. Can I get back to the drop down menu that gives me choices??
It is a Gateway 812GM Media Center with Windows XP

Open 'my computer'. At the top of the page click, 'tools' and select 'folder options.
On the 'general' tab click, 'restore defaults' and the same for the, 'view' tab.
I believe this will correct 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.

Tip

Use Your Own Graphic for Your User Account


This one isn't a Registry hack, but I couldn't resist putting it in here since it's one of the more useful ways to customize the interface. The Windows XP graphic for your user account on the Start Menu may not be to your taste, and your choice of other graphics to display there isn't particularly inspiring, either. After all, not everyone wants to be pictured as a rubber ducky, a snowflake, or a pair of horses.
But you're not limited to XP-supplied pictures for your user account: you can use any picture in .gif, .jpg, .png, or .bmp format. In this hack, I'll show you how to use your own picture.
To change your User Account picture to any one that you want, from Control Panel choose User Accounts, then pick the account you want to change and choose "Change my picture" → "Browse for more pictures." Navigate to the picture you want to use and click on OK. Figure 2-17 shows the screen you'll use to change your picture; it also shows the customized User Account picture I use during the winter holiday season.
If you have a digital camera or scanner attached to your PC, a button will show up on the screen shown in Figure 2-17 that lets you take a picture with the camera, or scan a picture with the scanner, and then immediately use that picture for your user account.
For those interested in saving keystrokes, there's a quicker way to get to the screen letting you customize your picture. From the Windows XP-style Start menu, click on your picture, and the screen appears.
Check back to this space next week for hacks on improving the Context Menu, surfing anonymously (without a trace), and tweaking DNS settings for faster Internet access.

Internet photos download as bitmaps instead of jpg's


First open Microsoft Paint by going to Start, All Programs, Accessories and then Paint
Now open the BMP file in Paint. Now all you have to do to save the file in JPG format is to simple do a Save As. Change the File Type drop down menu to JPG and click Save

I think my operating system needs to be reloaded I had a virus hit and now it doesn't work correctly and i want to save all my file & pictures before anyone works on my computer, how do I start?


If you have a second hard drive inside the pc you can copy them there. Otherwise you'll need to copy to a CD or USB drive. The hard part is going to be figuring out where all your files/pics are located at. You can do a search through windows explorer by extension on the whole C: drive. Ex. search for all *.pdf files for Adobe, all *.jpg for pictures. Also be sure to save your profile as it contains your IE Favorites, My Documents, My Music, etc.

I,M NOT SURE HOW I CAN GET MY PHOTOS TO LOAD IN JPG FORMAT FROM BMP


Super simple. Open the picture with Microsoft Paint. (Start -> Program -> Accessories -> Paint). Once you've got the image open, go to the top and click file -> save as. In the drop down box labeled Save as type: Choose JPEG (*.jpg, *.jpeg.... ). Then name is something useful, and save it somewhere memorable.

Thats it! Of course, there is more specialized software like photoshop, or paint shop that can do this and much much more, but the is the easiest and cheepest way.

Depending on the type of file you are downloading, If its a Jpeg. Windows Fax & Picture viewer should open it.

Check the file extension that you downloaded and verify it is an Image file i.e (bmp, tiff, jpeg, gif)... Then, right click that file, choose properties and see Which program opens it.

If there isnt a default setup Click on Change...and choose Windows Fax & Picture Viewer502fd15.jpg

Opening downloads on emails


all you need to know is the file extension of the file you downloaded. there are some common file extensions when attaching to the email . pdf , doc, if pictures the JPG,PNG, BMP, and many more. however if u have an office application program (Microsoft office,open office) all office files will be opened but if the file extension is PDF you must download and install the PDF reader. you can download it here http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html.
Take note! Any other files which you don't whose the sender and the extension files is not on office application program not pdf or picture files maybe can harm your system so be sure to know the files.
