I have had that happen before and to fix it I just rebooted. I will get that issue after downloading a lot of pics without breaks.

you can save it then right click go to edit (unless you can just double cick it and open it in paint... either way open it with MS paint) then go to file/save as and select which ever type you want to save it as.

The issue is that windows gets lost after a while. IE gets completely confused and things everything you save is a bmp file. I have also had firefox get lost thinking that wmv files were really text files. Usually a simple reboot makes it regain its whits for a little while anyhow.

Typing jpg when it saves will just give it a jpg extension, but it will still just be a bmp file.

you can force any file type to be opened with a given program also if that can help.

If you can set the thing to all files or something like that then save it as .jpg it shoudl work.

Dunno in HTML you save files as .html instead of .txt. Same concept I guess?

Not really. HTML files are txt files, only with a different extension. A bmp file is drastically different than a jpg file. You can still open it and such but even though it says jpg it will be a bmp. It is just like renaming a movie file from wmv to mpg. The computer will open it, but will bark about it saying the file doesn't match the extension.

In his situation, it probably gives no other option other than bmp, at least that is what it does to me. No all files or anything. It has lost its mind with memory and resource leaks and doesn't know which end is up anymore. It is nothing a quick reboot doesn't fix.

yeah from what it seems is a reboot fixed it ima try to do what monte said as well if the problem occurs in the future..just type .jpg after the file name and hope that does the trick instead of just adding it to the file name
