Trouble opening Jpegs? [Home made; Pentium 2; win95b]
I've e-mailed some Jpegs to a friend, but there is a problem getting them to open on her pc. When trying to open them we get this error message.
Cannot find the file, blah blah, make sure the path and file name are correct and that all required filenames are available.
Also, I've tried right clicking so that I get the 'open with' box, but 'open with' doesn't appear in the list.
Any help will be much appreciated.

When you tried to get the "open with" selection, did you highlight the file first ?
The proper way to do it is left click the file once to highlight, hold the shift key and THEN right click.

Thanks for your reply seracca, I've tried what you said, ie, highlighting and then right clicking, but I still don't get 'open with'. When I highlight and choose properties, it says it's a CorelPHOTO-PAINT! 4.0 Picture file or asociated with that progrmme?

What OS are you on?
In xp goto control panel> folder option>File types - then scroll down to jpeg images and change which prog opens them.

Soz, just noticed win 95, cant remember but is there a folder options in start under progs control panel etc.

Yes, there is a folder options under start. At the moment I have it set to classic style.

OK If you go into folder options can you see one of the tabs as being " file types"
Click on that tab.
(Hopefully) there is a list of file extensions and if you click on each one it says which associated programme is used to open the file.
Scrool down to jpeg and see what prog is being used to open the jpeg.
In 95 cant remember what it is set at but you can change it to IEexplorer or windows paint etc.
