Get picture ok in pane;but when I click on the Paper clip the following pops up.
This File does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the folder options control panel.
How does one do this?

I use IRFANVIEW to view a lot of pictures. Try that one.

It could be that you are asking how to make an association, but you weren't clear on that.

File Associations for images.

There are various ways to do this. The easiest, (from your point of view I think), is to right click the next image attachment you receive and save it to your disk. The Desktop is a good temporary place, but I stress only temporary.

Then right click on the file on your desktop and select Open. As there is no program associated with this type of file, a window will appear giving 2 choices. Choose "Select the program from a list" and click OK. A new window, "Open With" will appear. Scroll down to the program you normally use to open images, (eg your image processing software, or MSPaint, or Internet Explorer or other browser, etc), highlight it, and then tick the option that says "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file" Then click OK

Hope this helps
