View Full Version : Lost jpegs

07-12-2003, 08:27 PM
I had some pics sent in jpeg that had the M/soft logo as an icon, when I tried to open it I was asked OPEN WITH I tried Word and it changed the jpeg to 135 pages of gobledegoock, the problem is that it has changed ALL the jpegs in my files. Is there any way I can get them back. thanks Pibs

Just left click once on a jpg file, then whilst holding down the Shift key, right click. Select Open with and then choose your original jpg viewer program. Make sure you put a tick beside "always use this program to open this type of file with".

For further help have a look at the FAQ section (link top right of this page). There is one on file associations. :-)

Thanks Jen C and Susan B, still no luck, what would be the usual prog to open jpegs? Pibs

If you have any photo editor programs, select one.

There is no "usual" program, everyone has their own favourite application.

As we dont know what windows version you have, its a bit difficult.

As you are posting here, you must be using a browser, so can I suggest using that as the default for now?

Irfanview is one of the best free image viewers/editors, look for a free download site using Google?

You could associate your jpegs with Internet Explorer for now but IrfanView is better.
