I recently purchased a new computer. When browsing webpages I cannot simply right click a picture and click save picture as. If there is an image on a website that is clearly a jpg, gif, etc when I right click and save picture as it will only save it as an ART file or a BMP file.

If you chose to save it as a BMP file when you try to view the picture it says no preview available.


I have tried a couple of things to fix it and nothing works.

What seems to be wrong with it?

perhaps clearing the cache will solve this.
microsft link here; http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...kb;en-us;260650
how to do this from that page here;

Delete the temporary Internet files. To do so, click Tools, click Internet Options, click the General tab, and then click the Delete Files button.

It might also be worth revising your internet cache size (tools / internet options / general / temporary internet files / settings).

I find that 2048 MB is more than adequate.

Pehaps a simple download of apicture archive tool such as picasa or digimarc will do the trick.It sounds like your system just does not recognize the format.

I have tried already deleting the cache. I tried to resolve this issue before with an HP tech Support guy.

He had me make sure the right internet explorer options were checked which they were. But he concluded there surely was something wrong since I should be able to save a jpg of gif file without a problem.

Why would a brand new HP not recognize the format of simple pictures online???

I am sure it is something easy to fix it I just have to find out what it is.

Open 'My Computer' and in the menu bar click on Tools>Folder Options.
Select the 'File Types' tab and scroll down until you find JPEG and JPG file extensions. What is listed as the associated program?

If your system contains no graphics software to deal with jpgs and gifs it normally associates them with Internet Explorer which can handle these files. If your jpgs etc are associated with IE then the problem lies with IE. Reset the settings to defaults or look at a repair. There is a tutorial to fix IE here:

If those files are associated with IE you should consider installing a graphics package. There are some good free applications which give you basic functions e.g. Irfanview is a free graphic viewer for personal use, which can view and edit images and playback video. Download it from here.
