My son has Windows Vista. He is having trouble with his picture attachments. When he clicks on a picture, it automatically downloads to a Word Document. He would like for it to open in Picture Manager or something where he can make it a .jpg document. He's gone to "associate this file" and it does not help. He has other users on his computer and they don't have this problem... so it has to be something he has done inadvertently. Can you help me please?

Thanks - Gerrianne

Have him right click on the image file and select Properties. The first tab, "General", will have the file type and what program is being used to open it. Click the "Change" button and he can browse to program he wants to use.

You are very welcome. Always try this when you have the wrong program opening a file. After all, we are suppose to control something sometimes and programs seem to take over and not tell us. :)
