View Full Version : Opening files

15-05-2003, 09:06 AM
How does one open a file that has an icon that appears as a little page with the top corner turned down and inside there is a little box with some colour symbols in it. I guess there is a name for this type of file but I don't have it. Normal double clicking won't open it so what can be used to open it. Or, does the file need to be converted in some way? If so how? Thanks

Firstly we needa know the file's extention ( what's after the period - 3 letters :-))

It may be hidden, so open up My Computer and cick Tools
-Folder options
Click on the View Tab

Now, untick "Hide extensions for Known File types"

Now let us know what the file extention is :-)

That description you give sounds like a graphics (picture) file, try downloading and installing/configuring IRFANVIEW from Here (http://www.tucows.com/preview/194967.html) and using that. it may help. Without any other details about your system this is purely guesswork.

Cheers, Babe.
