    Default Ummm...Help????

    This is for all you computer geeks out there:

    Is there a way that I can change the settings when attempting to right-click and save a photo?

    It's always been displayed as saving a photo on any web page as a JPEG, but, somehow, regardless of the web page I'm on, it not only displays Bitmaps as the primary means of saving that photos, it also saves photos as Bitmaps *only*.

    Yes, I *have* clicked on the drop-down menu when attempting to save a photo in the hopes that I can change it to JPEG, but Bitmaps is the only option displayed as being available.

    I don't know how this happened, but is there a way to change it back so that JPEG is my primary means of saving a photo?

    Thanks!

    An IT question I know the answer too!!!

    This happened to me. I found this on the Microsoft Knowledgebase. I don't know how it happened, but I used method #1 to fix it.

    Internet Explorer does not save graphics files in the proper format

    When you click the Save Picture As button for a graphics file in Microsoft Internet Explorer, you may be able to save the file only as a .bmp file even if the file is in another format (such as GIF or JPEG). The file name may also appear as "Untitled."

    CAUSE

    This issue may occur if either of the following conditions is true: •This issue may occur if your Temporary Internet pages cache is full.•This issue can occur if you have "Do not save encrypted pages to disk" selected in Tools, Options, Advanced Tab and are loading the page over a secure connection (https).For additional information about another cause for this issue, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 250747 Right-clicking, selecting "Save picture as" does not save image with correct extension


    WORKAROUND

    Depending on the specific cause for your issue, use one of the following methods to work around this issue. Method 1

    Delete the temporary Internet files. To do so, click Tools, click Internet Options, click the General tab, and then click the Delete Files button.

    Note To locate the Temporary Internet Files folder, click Options on the Tools menu, click the General tab, and then click Settings. The current location appears in the Settings dialog box.

    Method 2

    To work around the problem, click Tools, click Internet Options, click the Advanced tab, click to clear the Do not save encrypted pages to disk check box, click View, and then click Refresh. The Do not save encrypted pages to disk check box is under the Security section.

    STATUS

    Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section of this article.

    When you deleted your cache did you make sure to check "delete all offline content"?? Everything i'm finding on the web for the error your getting seems to point to a damaged internet cache file....

    Problem solved, thanks!

    It was a cache thing. I've never encountered something like this before, which is why I polled for assistance here.

    Thanks again, everyone!
