  Background: I came across an old photo (apparently using Windows Photo Viewer). Among the options I see on the Photo Viewer tool bar is "E-mail" and when I click it I see this message,

 

"E-mail ...

There is no email program associated to perform this action. Please install an email program or if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Programs control panel."

 

When I go to control panel\Default settings I see an option having to do with Mail .... but then I get lost. Can someone please walk me through the rest of the process?

 

FWIW ... I currently use an Yahoo mail account for my email and I want to continue doing so. Can I make it my "default email" setting, the one that will then allow me to email that old photo (and ones like it)? If so, how?

 

 

 

Thanks. ... batpark

Please provide the name and extension of the file. This will help determine what email program the file can be used with to open it. From your message this sounds like you are trying to open an email file and not a photo.

dmccoy: When I right click the "old photo" I learn that: its name is something like  nnnnn_nnnnnnnnn_nnnnn_n (where the ns are all digits, 1 thru 9); its extension is jpg; and its location is C:\Users\801\Downloads\Tassie.files. I <believe > I received the "old photo" (and a dozen like it) as an attachment to an email. ....batpark

Okay what happens if you right click on the file and select Open With from the menu. Then select your Photo program to open?
