Clarification Request
Re: Gif files

- Only animated gif files should animate. Not-animated shouldn't. So that needs not be wrong.
- What exactly do you mean with "Open"? Find one in Windows Explorer, right click and choose "Open". What happens? Is it really "nothing" that happens?
- What is "documents"? Any MS Word document? Or your Documents folder?
- And what is "anything"?
- What happens if you open such an animated gif in Windows Explorer?
- What happens if you open such an animated gif in Firefox?
