Changing Files??
Thu, 12-01-2005 - 1:50am
ocassionally when i save pictures i find online they don't save as a gif or jpeg but as "file".  it looks like a wep page with little folders on it.  when i go to open it a box appears that says "open with" and then i have to choose a program.  is there any way to prevent this?

I have never heard of that before but it may not be you it may be the way the person put them up. Maybe someone else has come across this and will let us know.....Janet

More than likely they have a special program.
