Whenever I save a .JPG from Internet Explorer it saves as a .JPEG instead, causing the file not to be recognized by some programs. If I save the same jpg file from Firefox it saves correctly as a JPG file, but for some reason every JPG file saved from IE is always saved as a JPEG...is there any way I can change this?
Thanks in advance for any help.

JPEG -Compression scheme supported by most graphics programs and used predominantly for web use.
jpg -More common extension for JPEG described above.

Common File Format Names

Just out of curiosity, what programs don't recognize JPEG?

When I want to make a slideshow of photos for a video in Honestech Video Editor it won't recognize the JPEGs, although it recognizes JPGs just fine. Also, some websites don't support the upload of JPEGs.
I'm still not sure why Internet Explorer saves JPGs as JPEGs for me...it didn't used to, as I remember.
If I go to save an image such as this:
http://www.ibiblio.org/Dave/Dr-Fun/faq/test.jpg
It will save as "test.jpeg" instead of its original format and name "test.jpg" and then not be compatible with some of the programs I use.

I don't have any ideas for how to solve the problem of IE creating the incorrect extension, but I do have a work-around that will allow you to see your files.

It is rather time-consuming, but this is what you can do until the problem itself is solved. Right click on the file names one by one that have the jpeg extension, click on rename. Click the mouse a couple times in the spot where you want to delete the 'e' and make sure that the entire name isn't highlighted. Now highlight the letter 'e' and hit the delete key then hit enter. You now have renamed that file from whatever.jpeg to whatever.jpg and will open in the programs you use.

There are many freeware batch rename utilities that allow you to change the file extension of files within, say, a folder. This would simplify the task.

I found a solution on my own; for anyone else who's experiencing the same problem of JPGs saving as JPEGs in Internet Explorer, here's what to do to fix it:

1. Go to Start - Run - run regedit.exe
2. Open the left pane to "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\MIME\Database\Content Type\image/jpeg" and highlight it.
3. In the right pane double click on "Extension" and change the value from ".jpeg" to ".jpg" (including the leading period)

That should fix the problem; now when I save a .JPG it saves as a .JPG like it should, instead of a .JPEG like it did before I changed the value in regedit.
