Photo Files

I have a pretty vanilla 98se, use Firefox most of the time, but have gotten into the habit of using Netscape (7)to view photos received in emails.
I'd like to get rid of Netscape altogether but wonder what else I can use to view photos. I'm a real "newbie" in this area and plan to stay that way - I just want to view the photos and am hoping for something within 98.

Any suggestions? If not, how about simple and free alternatives?

Thanks - Tosca

Still free(?). Also download "all plugins". When installing, choose "all image files" (I uncheck bmp as I still use MSPaint to edit). this will reset all images to open with irfanview, where you can change any of the picture formats to any of the others. You can also resize by proportion, print by sizing the image to fit horizontally or vertically, and many other features including making a screensaver. Once you learn, you'll love it. I use it to view gif and jpg as I can't resize in I.E. ...

IE works just as well as Netscape. And I think Firefox will work too (it's rather compatible!).

But I agree with reefurbb, irfanview is a very nice program also.

Thanks to corphaeus, reefurbb (as usual!), and Kees - I think I'll try Fx - Should have looked there first!

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?
