This seems like it should be an easy fix. Say I go to Yahoo image search and get a list of results. I see one I like and click on it, then View Image next to the preview. If I right-click and "Save Image as..." it ALWAYS has it as .bmp by default and gives it the default name of "untitled". Obviously the image is not a .bmp file but it doesn't let me save it otherwise. I'm tired of having to copy and paste the image's link into Netscape or Firefox just to save it. Any ideas?

Hi kchaple, :thumbsup: to BC

Sounds like you need to clean your temporary internet files. The behavior you are describing is what happens when your temporary internet folder is full. Go to Tools and on the drop down menu select Internet Options. On the General Tab in the Temporary Internet files section click the Delete files button then place a check mark in the Delete all offline content box and click the OK button. You may also want to clean out any old cookies while you are cleaning the rest of your cache.
