IE saves images wrong

Whenever I try to save an image in IE lately, it saves it as a bitmap. Even if the image is a .gif or .jpg, it will only allow me to save it as a bitmap (unless i choose a filename ending in .jpg, but the resulting jpeg is a huge file, just as it would have been if it were a bitmap). Is there a setting somewhere that would tell IE to stop being dumb and let me save source images in their true format??

Thanks!!

In the resulting Save As... dialogue box, click the Save as type drop down menu at the bottom of the screen, and select your supported file types: (.bmp, .gif, etc...)

Sorry, I wasn't very clear. That drop down menu is only giving me the option of saving as a bitmap, even when I know the source file is a jpg or gif.

Thanks!! Seems to work!! (very strange solution to very strange problem though). I really appreciate your effort!

Seems the problem was I had too many temporary internet files......

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
