To move anything received via email...you must save it as a regular file.

 

You can save it to any folder on your system...even create a folder for it, if you like.  You can use the "My Pics" folder or not...it's up to you.  The key thing is to know where you have stored such saved files.

 

Are you using Outlook (part of Microsoft Office) or Outlook Express (part of XP/Internet Explorer) for email?

Luis is, as almost always, absolutely correct but as you say you are looking for the simplest '101' you might have a problem with folders !

 

Can I suggest either of a couple of books to you - either 'An Idiots' guide to XP' or 'XP for Dummies'. These are part of two very well known collections of guides covering a wide range of computing and other subjects. They are in general very well and clearly written, they are specific about the assumptions they make about your existing knowledge level, and they contain a welcome note of humour !  They do throw in the odd bit of technicalese - but this is presented as an optional extra.

 

XP is now a fairly old operating system, to get your hands on these books I suggest you try your local library, E-bay or Amazon. I think you will find them very good value, and best wishes for a long life using computers !

Dear Chris,I am going to get to the library and look for both the books you have suggested as I would only be attempting to put the cart before the horse without any knowledge on "folders"(or anything else for that matter-lol)....I came to BC highly recommended by Microsoft because of malware & getting hijacked and Quietman guided me through every issue, now its time to learn the basics so I can begin enjoying the computer!.........My very best wishes  to you also(thanks so much)newbleeping
