    finally got a ziped email unziped, now I want to print it out, but when I try I get a message: Could not draw this picture. It may not be recognized by Quick Time for Windows. or there may not be enough memory. I know that I have enough menory, so what else should I try in order to get this printed?

    Thanks

    try opening the picture with Internet Explorer

    left click once to hi lite
    hold shift key, right click
    "open with"
    iexplore

    sounds like quick time has taken over your images

    the only way i know how to open the file is to go to documents where what i want is, and clicked on what i wanted, tried to highlight but it wouldn't highlight. if you would please give me step by step instructions so i can try again. sure would like to be able to get this printed.

    thanks

    Ok now I don't think the problem is in printing just that file, I tried to print just something off of a site, just to see if it would work. It highlighted just find, but got a message that the computer was not communicating with the printer, so now what do I do? Should I try to reload the printer disk? couldn't find anything in the printer book to tell me what to do. It is a Lexmark Z32
    Any help on this one?

    Hiya

    Is the picture saved as a thumbnail, in My Documents? If so, try going to View | Details.

    Then, just click to highlight, and follow what Hairy mentioned.

    Also, can you open any other pictures?
