Saving Images using Windows 7 and Windows Live

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I am using Windows 7 on my computer and I am also using Windows Live  for email. Recently I have received four mails with one image attached from my friend. But the problem is when I am trying to save the attachment it asks for the location for saving, but the file type shown is only ‘.att’. Also when I save through the File menu via Save attachment option it saves the text and image, but the name of the image file cannot be changed, all attachment files are named as ‘photo.jpg’. So each time I save files, the previous one saved is overwritten. Any ideas?

Hallo Peter,

If the attachment that you are trying to save does not agree for the file name to be changed, then you can use the save as option in the file menu which will allow you to provide another name for the file/attachment. But it is strange that you are saying that the save as option does not allow you to change the file name.

Otherwise change the location where you will save the file. The default location is in the downloads folder, but in this case try changing the location where the file should be saved to the desktop and see if it helps.

But I still think that you should try the save as option, it should enable you to change the file name for the attachment that you want to save.
