Hi. I saved some jpegs from the internet but when I try and open them I get a message that says "Wndows cannot open .exe" What should I do to fix this?

Also, I'd like to download a picture viewing program that allows me to open any images. I'd also like to set it up as my default image viewer so I don't have to mess around trying different programs. I can open the jpegs in Gimp for instance but can't open by simply clicking on file.

Can you please tell me if there is a free and simple image program I can download that will help? And also, how should I set it up so it always opens my images and gives me thumbnails of those images. Thanks.

Hi. I tried right clicking. On the jpegs it doesn't give me the option to "open with" just "open". When I do the message appears.

Cheers! :) (y)

I'll mark the thread "solved" then, but for future reference this option is available to you as well in the "Thead Tools" tab when you are satisfied with a resolution.
