How can I embed graphics into the body of an e-mail. I don't want to send them as an attachment.

Using Vista and Windows Mail...

I open "Create Mail" then select "Insert" in the top menu. Other e-mail programs must have similar procedures.

Hope this helps.

Thanks, I'll give this a try. I hope I can take the graphics from my pictures and my documents.

I have never had a problem with jpeg files and some others... not sure if document files will work.

See what works for you.

Embeding graphics.

I did do a little experimenting and finally figured out a way it can be done. Works like a charm on exerpts from my documents after changing them to jpeg files. This can be done in a round about way.
Thanks again for your input.

Right you are. All I needed was the motivation. Happy New Year.

My curiosity is getting the best of me. Every time I see your CNet name I think... what is a rockpicker? Does it have some special meaning such as being a stone or gem collector... or are you working hard time in a detention facility or could it be a stone cliff climber. Just curious... no response needed if you prefer.

Thanks! The devil made me ask. Grin

Whats in a name?
by rockpicker3308 / December 25, 2008 10:55 AM PST

My son and I own a rockshop. We collect, cut and facet our stones, then turn them into jewelry. On the side I am a self taught artist and have tried my hand at graphic design. Just wanted to learn how to share them without long tedious uploads and downloads. By the way I'm a 77 year old lady, still going strong.

Ahhh... somewhat as I had guessed

Thanks for the reply! Keep up the good work... stay active both mentally and physically. Sounds like you have a lot of grit that will serve you well in a long and productive life. Thanks for satisfying my curiosity... that name was unusual. I wish the forums still had the feature of viewing members profiles... sometimes it is nice to know members better.

Thanks again! Happy New Year!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
