Hi there. When I try to save a jpg file off the internet it defaults to jpeg extension. (More detailed version: I right-click on picture and click on "Save Picture As" - the Save Picture box comes up. The "Save As Type" shows "JPEG (*.jpg)" but the "File Name" has a .jpeg extension.) I want the default extension to be jpg (as I can't open jpeg extensions with Photo Editor). This started happening after I installed ACDSee for my camera. I tried uninstalling ACDSee, but there was no change. I'm thinking there's something in the Registry, but when I searched for anything with "jpeg" in it there was nothing obvious that I could change - and obviously I don't want to be screwing around. Thanks.

JPEG and JPG are essentially the same extensions. JPEG is used in Windows environments as those can use file extensions with more than three characters. JPG is primarily used in environments that are bound to 3 characters, such as MSDOS.

What you are missing is the file association in Photo Editor, which associates JPEGs and JPGs to Photo Editor. That should be changable under the preferences of Photo Editor. So take a look around inside it.
