    When I forward an attachment from my floppy disk, only the Windows logo opens. What am I doing wrong?

    How are you saving it to the floppy? As a shortcut or the actual file? Do a start button, find files or folders...how large is the file?

    Alwill,

    Thanks!
    I really tried to see if it looked real but zooming in on it would not help because it was not a good image.

    Too cute! ;)

    Mustang Lady, where did you go? You always run off and leave us hanging. Can we get some input back from you? ;)

    How do I tell how large the file is? When I go to "find files and folders" there are several images.

    p.s. I'm sorry I disappear @ times. My job sometimes takes me away on a moments notice. I really do appreciate your helping me out!!!!!!!!

    Sounds to me like you may just have copied a shortcut, not the file itself. When you put a file on the floppy, how are you getting it there? Are you opening the file and choosing 'save as' and then going to the a: drive or are you dragging and dropping?

    Just for fun, instead of saving it to a floppy, try saving it to your desktop......now forward it.....what happens?
