    When I receive Gif Images, my system won't show them unless I click on every picture number and
    open by clicking on a View box in a little screen.
    Can i adjust my computer too view Gif images when sent to me?

    They're being sent by a friend that has Hughes Net for their provider. Via e mail. And everyone is in Gif, format,.

    There are a few programs that can be set as you default for gif, by default Windows machines have IE set as the viewer.

    To your original question,
    When files are sent as attachments, the they must be clicked on to view them regardless of the type.

    I am not sure what this "open by clicking on a View box in a little screen" is?

    Email program are you using to read these emails?

    A picture is worth a thousand words.... :) Could you perhaps post a screenshot of what you mean?


    To take a screenshot,

    1- Hit the Printscreen key on your keyboard. This will copy your entire screen to the clipboard. Hitting ALT + Printscreen will only copy the active window.

    2- Open Paint. (Press the Windows key + R to open a Run box and type mspaint followed by the Enter key)

    3- Select Edit.

    4- Click on Paste. (or simply press CTRL+V on your keyboard)

    5- Select File.

    6- Click on Save As...

    7- Save your screenshot as a JPEG file.

    8- Attach the screenshot to your next post.
