Could someone let me know how plug ins work please.I visited a site recently and it said I needed the plug in to view pics.I downloaded the plug in offered,yet nothing changed.I could definitely do with a bit of educating on this matter please.

Hiya :-)

What plugin did you download? Have a look through and follow the instructions on this page (http://plugindoc.mozdev.org/faqs/phoenixwin.html). If you get stuck just ask for more help.

To see what plugins you have already installed, open up Mozilla Firebird and in the address bar where the web site URL goes, type in about: plugin. Note: remove the space I had to add after the : to stop this happening --> about:pluggin which doesn't quite convey what I was trying to type :D

This will show what plugins are already installed and what versions they are.

Supergran, if you're using Internet Explorer you can find out what plugins you've got installed by looking in Tools, Options, General, Settings, View Objects. The items listed in there are the plugins. ;-)

Thanks, I just checked, and have seen those programs before, but didn't realise they were plugins. I just had to download a plug in for Nero, but that isnt' in there, so they obviously dont all go to the same place, or I shifted where it went to. But as it works, I am not worried about where I put it. LOL

um.....why on earth would you think a plug in for nero would install itself into IE?

Common sence says its in the nero plug-in folder.

Metla, I didnt' have the foggiest what a plug in even did, which is why I asked the previous question, so how the heck would I know where it is supposed to go, when I dont' even know what it does!!!!!!!!!!1
