I've been googling this problem for a while now. Not until recently, my IE browser started saving files at .jpeg instead of .jpg. I figured at first it was the image files on the website but now it happens to all files, including ones I know have been uploaded as .jpg. This makes it pretty frustrating when I'm trying to locate files and keep forgetting that it has been saving them as .jpeg. When I right click and do save as, it says the file name then type is JPEG image (.jpg) but the file extension is .jpeg. I tried clearing my temporary internet file cache but that didn't help. If anyone could help me figure out how to get it back to the .jpgs, that would be great. I tried messing with the folder options/file types but it did no good. Then again, maybe I just didnt know what to do. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Hi lineinasong. Funny thing, I noticed the exact same problem tonight. I don't know exactly how it was repaired but I had two versions of ACDSee on my system and uninstalled the older version and re-associated JPG images. So while I fixed the problem I don't can't seem to find a way to recreate it in order to give you an answer.
NB. I have been through the registry and cannot figure out what changed BUT found this Microsoft article. It offers a solution to "Internet Explorer saves images as bitmaps (.bmp Files)"
It may help. Please let me know if it does

Hey, is there a reason to why you want it jpg instead of jpeg becuase (to my knowledge) they are exact same thing. Maybe the website has saved it as jpeg instead of jpg
