I have recieved an attachment (JPeg.2) 322KB which I cannot open. I get a message...'This file does not have a programme associated with it for performing this action..Create an association in Folder Options Control Panel'. I have looked at these options but cannot understand... Could someone please help.. Thank you....

Thanks VoG for your reply. I downloaded imgeditor.zip and tried to follow the instructions but it didn't work. I must have done something wrong as usual....

Is JPeg.2 the name of the file?

Rename it to 2.jpg. Then try and open it.

Sorry for the delay.. jpeg.2 is in the attach column of OE. Is that the name of the file?. I will try to change the name but how do I do that?
Thanks for your interest....

Save the attachment to your hard drive. Then right click on the file and select rename.

I have tried saving the attachment to my hard drive but it doesnt change the name of the file in OE. It says 'The command failed to execute'.

Go to Control Panel/Folder Options,click the View tab uncheck `Hide Extensions for known file types`

No, sorry. You cannot change the name of the attachment in OE. You need to save it to your hard drive. Then find the saved file in Windows Explorer, right click it and select Rename. Then double-click on the renamed file to open it.

By the way, I assume that you were expecting this file. It seems odd to have been sent a wrongly named file.

Thanks for your replies.
I will try what you say and let you know.
It is a file from my daughter showing pics of my granddaughter

I have tried both your suggestions but to no avail. In Windows Explorer I get a message saying,' Windows cannot access specified device, path , or file... You may not have the appropriate permission to access item'..
Thanks for trying...
