I want jpegs not bitmaps

By andrew74eva ·
Often when I right click on a jpeg image to "save picture as" I only get the option to save it as a bitmap...I want to save it as a jpeg.
This problem started only yesterday: before yesterday I had no problem saving jpeg pics from the net as jpegs but now the only option available is to save many of them is as a .bmp file.
I am running windows 2000 with IE sp6.
This is driving me insane! how can I fix it?

Delete your Temporary Internet Files.
In IE6, click TOOLS>OPTIONS under Temporary Internet Files click Delete Files.
If your TIF's are full, IE will only save as BMP.

Are you using AOL? I have Windows XP, IE6 and AOL. If I try to save a picture in AOL - I can only save as BMP or ART. If I open IE6 - it allows me to save it as a jpg.

Try That

The key was OM's answer, see above. After I deleted my temporary internet files I could save files as JPegs just like before.
I'm not using AOL, just IE6. Poster rated this answer.
