Can't send a picture of anything from the document file. When I click that attachment it says, "There is no email program associated to perform the requested action. Please install an email program, or if one is already installed, create an association in the default conrol panel." I have email thru yahoo, also prairieinet, and live.com. How can I do an association with email? Thanks for any help.

EDIT: Moved to more appropriate forum ~ Hamluis.

What exactly are you trying to do? You're getting that error because Windows is looking for an email program to do the task you are trying to do. It's not smart enough to go to your web-based email accounts.

Could you please explain in greater detail what exactly you are trying to do?

When I click on a picture in Windows Live Photo Gallery to email it I get the same thing. "Need to establish an assosciation in the default control panel.

Okay, I understand now.

You cannot use the email function built into your word processor to email it to somebody, unless you use an email program like Outlook, Thunderbird, etc. You will have to log in to your web-based email account (in your web browser), and attach the file (whether it be document, photo, etc..) to your email. Here is how to do it in Yahoo email.
