Hiya Angel, I use outlook express - 98 ad when I try and open the attachments a box comes up saying that is does not have a programme associated with this and to go to control panel, view.....I have tried this but to be honest - don't really know what I am doing? can you pls give me some direction? Thanks in anticipation, Carmen.
Open one of your emails that contains one of those attachments. Then right-click on the attachment and choose to save it locally (not sure of the exact terminology). Then find the file you saved and double-click it. If there's no program associated with it, you should get a box asking you which program you would like to use to open it. Find the appropriate programs, select it, and check the box to always use that program to open files of that type. You will need to do that with each different file type.
Please post back if that doesn't resolve your problem.
Well I have tried in vain to do as you instructed, problem being I don't know what programmes open up what files, and their is no option to check them even if I did know....as I mentioned, I can open any office realted files it's just pictures, and small movies etc that won't open! Is driving me crazy!
