I'm running Windows XP Pro, SP2 and Internet Explorer 8. I've been asked to
find out how to stop links to JPG's in a web page from opening up in Internet
So for example, I may have a web page open in Internet Explorer which has a
link to http://www.fake-site.com/image.jpg
. When I click on the link I want
it to open the JPG in the Windows default application (which I've got set to
Microsoft Office Photo Editor).
Whatever I do, JPG's always open in Internet Explorer.
For links to Word documents (for example), I can stop them opening in IE by
unticking the "Browse in same window" tick box when editing the DOC file type
in Folder Options > File Types. If I do this for JPG or JPEG then the "Browse
in same window" option is greyed out.
It seems to be the same using IE7 and I've tried associating JPG's with
other applications. When I open a file from Windows Explorer it's fine -
opens in the default application, but when clicking on a link from IE the JPG
is displayed in IE.
I'd be grateful if anyone could let me know whether this is possible to
change and how...
Thanks in advance!
