When I receive a jpg attached file in OE 6.0, the file associates to Word. How can this jpg file default to the proper software on my XP?
I have several programs on the computer that read jpg files.
Maybe right click open with,,,media player, looks by default it wants to
open with word. I would try and get media player by default, look into
options, or preferences in media player to get the association of .jpg to
be default, or any other program you would like to view those files.
You can set file associations through Windows Explorer. Open up explorer, click on Tools-Folder Options-File Types. Look through there to see what .jpg attachments are associated with. From there you should be able to change said association.
Hope that helps!
Another way is to open your image viewer (ACDSee, CompuPic and IrfanView are all good if you haven't already got one). Then go to the Options menu and look for File Associations, where you can set the program as default viewer for jpg, bmp, png, tif, etc.
