    Hello,

    Does anyone know why, that just up until a few weeks ago, I can only save images on the web as .bmp's, they are huge fles sizes. Does anyone know how I can save these as JPG's? It seems as though it just suddenly is startign to do this..

    I'm referring to when you right-click an image and choose save as..

    Thanks,
    Dan

    There are 3 main possibilties.
    1.One is the cache is full. Click Tools>Internet Options and under temporary internet files click empty.

    2. 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
    In IE click Tools>Inernet Options>Adavanced. Scroll down to the security section and uncheck the "Do No Save Encrypted pages"

    3.This issue can occur when you connect to a Web site using an address that contains <usernameassword>. For example, the server is accessed through http://<usernameassword@site>/default.htm, instead of http://<site>/default.htm.
    Open the Temporary Internet Files directory and locate the image that you attempted to save.
    Right click the image and click Open.
    When the image loads into Internet Explorer, right click the image and click Save Picture As. The correct file type and name should be correct.
    or
    Type in the direct path to the image that you wish to save.
    When the image loads into Internet Explorer, right click the image and select Save Picture As. The correct file type and name should be correct.
