When I get an email photo from a cell phone it is saved in the download folder (which is another problem), and when I try to open it in that folder I get the above error message. I am able to open the picture in the body of the email however. I would like to save those pictures in "My Documents/Pictures." Thanks...WIN 7 system

If the image is displayed in the body at the size you want, you may be able to save it using one of these approaches:

  • right-click image > Save Image As...
  • right-click (anywhere on page) > Page Info > Media tab > select image > "Save As" button

To change your download folder, or turn on the dialog to let you choose every time, check out this article: Startup, home page, tabs, and download settings.

Does that work?

Regarding the error message in your subject line, I don't know what is causing that. Which Zip/Unzip program do you use?

I am able to open the photo in the body of the email just fine. When I get the msg to save, it always is saved in my download folder. When I go to that folder and click on the file, I get the error msg. I did a search for a Zip program from the Start button and it seems I dont have a Zip program installed. Any suggestions for a good one?

Hi RobertRivers,

  • You should be able to take control of the folder for saving images as described in the article linked above. (Email notifications are plain text and do not contain the actual links, so you need to revisit the thread to click through.)
  • While there are many Zip utilities, if you would prefer one that is free and open source, you could try 7-zip from here: http://www.7-zip.org/. When creating your own archives, choose the Zip format (instead of the 7z format) for maximum compatibility.
