The origin of the images was 'save-as' from the WEB, and they had peculiar names which included 'jpg/png' in the name, as well as in the extension; many images had a lengthy name made up of (code) numerous characters.

Instead of using "save as", us a screen grabber such as Snagit, there are also free ones out there.

Good advice FOR THE FUTURE, in the meantime, those already downloaded in an unwise way need to be renamed.

It turns out that in the properties of the containing folder, READ-ONLY had been ticked ! Once that was reversed, the problem disappeared.
