Internet Explorer keeps saving pics in .BMP format

Q: Internet Explorer keeps saving pics in .BMP format

I just noticed that Internet Explorer has been saving all my pics in .BMP format. This means that all of the animated .GIFs i downloaded aren't animating anymore because they were saved as .BMP files.

Also the picture name changes to "untitled" in the "save as" window. What is wrong?

Preferred Solution: Internet Explorer keeps saving pics in .BMP format

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Internet Explorer keeps saving pics in .BMP format

Close IE. Go to Internet Options in Control Panel. Delete all your temp internet files.

If i have an employee that uses a computer in the office and they save a ton of pictures to their computer(save to file), will this slow the computer down? Is it more likely to get viruses? What other problems does this present?

A:saving pics from the internet

i doubt it would slow the computer down, unless the drive was near to capacity. it is possible that, without the proper measures, depending on what websites they navigate to that viruses are a possibility - just browsing the net has that vulnerability, but also viruses that hide themselves as other files - a jpg for example.

Hey all!:

I have a question to ask you - you see, when I save new pics to a CD-RW that already has tons of pics in it, I usually take the pics out of the CD-RW and then save them in a folder on my desktop, then I erase the CD-RW. I then add the new pics to the folder that I had made for the pics that I had taken out of the CD-RW, that was later erased, and then I burn the CD-RW, again, and have all of the pics burned to the CD-RW (both new pics and the pics that were already on the CD-RW). But, the problem is this - I wanted to do something different, and it seemed to have worked at the time, but then it went down-hill from there....I had decided to add new pics to the CD-RW that already had burned pics to it, but since I had burned the new pics to the CD-RW that already had burned pics added to them, I can't find the newly-burned pics. Does anyone know what I can do to retrieve the newly-added pics to the CD-RW that already has tons of pics in it?? Please write back, ASAP, for I need help, IMMEDIATELY!!! Thanks in advance.

A:Please Help Regarding Saving Pics To CD-RW's...

i don't know what drive you have been trying to access the cd in, but you might try seeing if your burner can read the disc.

many times, when you put together a multi-session cd, you will find it is unreadable on older cd rom drives, and some proprietary drives like hp and compaq.

if you already have been trying to access it with your burner, then there is definately a real problem.

if this doesnt help, let me know.

Well Guys, I'm not one for going straight into a question.
Would get me a good B*ll*cking on the other sites.

But i'm a bit stuck, i'm using Express Web Pictures to get images from various web sites.

Thing is, recently it's getting up to 93%/95%/98% of a downloaded image, then just stops
and hangs !!.

Sometimes a similar thing happens if I just try and save an image, either by
'Save Picture' or 'Save Target As'. If I try and put it into a specific Folder
then it just hangs there !!. I have to 'Control/Alt/Delete' to clear this one though.

I've 'Defragged' the hard drive but it has made no difference.

Only happens with 'Image' files not any other !!

Running Windows ME Btw

Any ideas would really be appreciated !!

Normally ie7 saves 20 days worth of History. Today I noticed that no websites are being saved in my History. There are .txt files saved in history that I have opened, but no websites. I have cleaned out my History, temp internet folders ect with no luck.

I can't remember changing any settings, so I'm not sure why this is happening.

In Internet Options go to the General tab

Then under the Browsing History header go to 'Settings' and check that this hasn't been set to 0. If it's set to 0 then it will clear it out each time you close Internet Explorer

I transferred my pics to my vista machine. As in XP I just like to have one folder with all my pics regardless of date. Well in Vista it automatically created a folder named "3/05/07" with all those pics I downloaded that day. so I'm assuming when I go to transferr pics again it'll create another folder with that days date as the name. How do I disable this and just have one folder with all pics????

A:Saving Pics from Camera

Im not sure as to whether you can actually disable the date and details etc but you can do the following.

As you have already created a file containing your pics, it should just be a matter of you clicking on "save to" and selecting the file you have already save in-when you click save, you will be given an opportunity to save them in your designated folder.

If you have already saved them to another file,just open up the file folders in the left hand pane and then drop and drag the required pics to the required folder that is showing in the pane

Your database could simply have 2 attributes, an autonumber (the Primary Key) and a filename.
As you add new entries, the autonumber increments up.
Then fetch the rows and propogate the page with that (it will nab the filenames for you).

Yesterday my husband received the custom built not a dell dude system I ordered from him
The OS is Windows 7. Both of us are now entering the Learning Curve zone.

My first question about Windows 7:

He checks his Yahoo mail. One message has an attachment with a photo.
With XP, one is given a choice to OPEN the photo to look at it OR to save it. I no nothing about the workings of Windows 7, but I did try a few things and got nothing but the option to save.

Right now, he is a bit hot under the collar because in Windows 7, the only option is to SAVE the photo somewhere, then open it and look at it. The attachment thumbnail picture is small, and he wants to see it larger so he can look closely at a few details BEFORE he decides whether to save the picture or not.

With XP, click on the photo, get a choice OPEN or SAVE.
So how does one OPEN the picture without having to save it first in Windows 7?

A:Open vs. Saving Pics

This probably has more to do with the browser you are using than the operating system, although I can't say for sure because I can't see it myself.

If you're using Firefox, try Internet Explorer. Or vice-versa: if you're using IE, try Firefox.

I don't think it is Windows 7 that is doing this. Could be wrong....but the browser would be the first thing to check.

I've come across a problem recently while using IE6. When I go to save a picture, instead of letting me save it as a JPG or GIF (like the picture is), it makes me save it as a BMP.

Now, a few things:

1) I'm not totally sure if this happens all the time, or just some of the time (I'm leaning more towards some of the time, but no obvious pattern).

2) If I try to force the extention by saving it as "example.jpg" with the parenthesis, either the file becomes unopenable, or it just saves as a jpg with the file size of a bmp (and with the gif animations, it just saves it as a single static bmp picture).

How can I fix this?

Hi there,

We are seeing quite a few users in our company getting a prompt to save the PDF they want to open, instead of it just opening. I can't find the setting to change this anywhere.

Does anyone know where the setting is or where the registry key is?
Also does anyone know how to disable the open confirmation prompt (orange bar along the bottom).

Thanks :)

A:Internet Explorer downloading/saving PDF rather than opening?

Ok so I found the solution to this, you have to set the default download location and also have to tell it to 'not ask when opening these types of files'.

Both of these settings are done from the Download menu (CTRL + J). You have to right click a downloaded PDF in the list to set the latter option.

Hey All,

Wondering if anyone knows how I can fix this.

A few days ago, I noticed when I wanted to save an image from a web page, Internet explorer was only allowing me to save them as Bitmaps.

So I did some digging on Google and found many sites, offering exactly the same solution.

1) Clear the Temporary Internet Files
2) Check in Downloaded Program Files for any installed software that was marked as "Damaged".
3) Move the Temporary Internet Files folder to a different location.

I've tried all of the above and it has not solved my problem at all.

I've also reset IE7 and IE8. It made no difference.

The last attempt I made to fix this (which was also the last possible solution I found) was re-registering the mshtml.dll.

However, I get the following error message when I try doing this:

The Module "mshtml.dll" was loaded but the entry-point DllRegisterServer
was not found. Make sure that "mshtml.dll" is a valid DLL or OCX file and
then try again.

So I tried to unregister it and then register - Same error as above.

Within Downloaded Program Files folder there are only 2 things installed (neither marked as damaged) - "Shockwave Flash Object" and "System Requirements Lab". It won't let me uninstall either of these, only gives me the option to call up a Properties window on each and nothing in this window allows me to alter these.

I upgraded my browser to IE8 just to see if that made any difference and it di... Read more

Have you reset IE ? (InternetOptions/Advanced/Reset) I would choose the first option and then if not successful "Delete Personal Settings" option. IE needs to be restarted after.

If not, disable your tracking protection, extensions, and AV one-by-one to see if that could be the culprit.

Can anyone tell me the right format for a Proxy Exception to cover a domain with subdomains?There are several examples covering the use of wildcards -
like this MS article:
The "Enter a wildcard at the beginning of an Internet address..." example does not cover the useage of subdomains :-(

Do I use\ set the proxy exception to "*.*.*.microsoft.com" or is "*.microsoft.com" enough to cover all the a.b.c subdomains?

/Tord Bergset

A:Internet Explorer Proxy Exception - Syntax format for covering subdomains?

As the document states,  using a wildcard at the beginning of an Internet address, IP address, or domain name to bypass servers
with a common ending. For example, use "*.example.com" to bypass any entries ending in ".example.com" (such as "some.example.com" and "www.example.com"). 

So I think *.microsoft.com is enough to cover all the subdomains.

In my Save As window, I have a drop-down menu with a choice of formats to save in. One of them is Word (Generic). Does this mean that, if I save it in that format, anyone with MS Word should be able to open it without sentences, paragraphs, etc. being skewered?

I'm trying to save a CSV file with leading zeros. I've tried all of the excel tricks. (Here are a couple: use an apostrophe before the zeros, format as text. I've tried '0 and concatenate, using a long string of zeros and using the right() function [must have 5 digits].)

When I save the file (as a csv) and reopen, all the leading zeros are gone. The reason I need the format like this is because it must be imported into another application as comma delimited. Thank you for any suggestions.

A:Saving leading zeros in CSV format

I have just formatted cells as text, began the string with a comma, and then entered it all, saved as csv, closed and reopened, and the formatting was preserved.

You said you tried it with an apostrophe, but did you use a comma?

BTW, formatting as text will only show the 0's in Excel, as csv does not recognise the text format. In other words, you don't need it.
