I can't right-click save jpg or gif

By ron ·
For the last month my computer will not let me right-click save as jpg or gif. This is really frustrating as it is one of my favorite things to do with my computer. If I right-click and hit save as, it opens the save window and it is labeled, untitled bmp. I can change the name if I want but it will not let me save as anything but bitmap. I have an AMD Athelon 1.2 gig with 480 megs of ram, 14 gig hard drive (half full) and I am operating with Windows ME. Someone help

Try holding down the shift key when you right click. Go down the list of applications and chhose the one you normally use to view Jpgs. Put a check mark in the always use box and see if that helps.

I tried holding the shift and it did not change anything. I still can not save as anything other than .bmp

Try downloading a freeware JPG viewer like

And see if that works. You may need it to associate to JPG or GIF

Good luck

I have plenty of jpg viewers. I have painter 7, photoshop, corel draw, corel paint, thumbs plus, irfanview. I have no problem saving something as a jpg or a gif in any of them. It is getting the picture from the web into one of these programs that is the problem.

I believe some websites can code their pages that will not allow you to save their images onto your hard drive. That may be the problem.

This did not help but reformatting and reinstalling windows did.
