Help! A friend sent me a email with some pictures (not as attachments), and I would like to use one as my wallpaper. How would I transfer one of the pics, rather than the whole email, as has been the case. Obviously,I'm not too comp lit, so I would appreciate your help. Happy Holidays to all. J.

Right-click the picture in the e-mail and choose the option to Save As, enter the location of your choice, and click OK. Browse to the location where you saved the photo and right-click it...you should now be presented with the option to use it as your background. It may take a second to be applied, but it should be that easy.

Hope this helps,
John

Hi John, your tip on the wallpaper worked fine. Maybe you can help with one more problem. I have lost the sound on my Windows ME. Any tips along those lines?

First make sure all wires are still plugged in tight. Next, right click the My Computer icon and click properties. Click the Device manager tab and go down to sound. Click the plus sign and and right click each entry and remove it, OK the warning. When they are all gone reboot the computer. if still no sound click start and in the run box type dxdiag and OK. on the window that opens click the sound tab and try the tests. you can also click the More help tab and do some testing there. also you can write down the card manf and use that to get an updated driver from their web site
