I don't knwo what the problem is, but whenever I open an image file and "Save As" a new file, it is saved in the Temporary Internet Files folder instead of the desktop. I have to "Save As" again to actually save the picture on my desktop. What should i do? o_O

Try this. Next time you d/l a graphic, use "save as" and save it to My Pictures (or created whatever folder you would like, such as "Downloads); Windows should remember where you saved it the next time.

Nooo. It's like a picture file already on my computer saved to my Desktop. Now i want to "save as" and save AGAIN on my desktop with a different name. In that case it doesn't save to the Desktop, but the Temporary Internet Files Folder.

When you "Save as" and the box comes up, are you picking the "Save in" location at the top of that box? You can pick the Desktop from there, or any other location you wish.

When you open a picture file, what program does it open with?

Well, I can think of two options here. The first is to use another picture editor. If you were to download and install Irfanview the problem would no doubt resolve itself. Its a great little free program with a lot of features that will allow you to manipulate your photos as you wish, including adding text and removing redeye.

The other suggestion I have is to try fixing the registry. To do this you would boot to a Command prompt and type in scanreg /fix. That might work.

What file extension do these pictures have? Is it .jpg?
