I have a new file called signatures. It is full of animated signatures with the GIF extension. They used to be saved in a program (can't remember which one)where I could click on the GIF and it would open right there in the folder so I could see it. Somehow they got changed to the Microsoft Paint program and had to open in Paint. My son just installed a CD and apparently Quick Time was also installed along with it and now all my GIF's open in Quick Time. Does anyone know how to change which program my GIF's are opened in? I have Windows 98 second edition.

Here is what help shows:
To change which program starts when you open a file
In My Computer or Windows Explorer, on the View menu, click Folder Options.
Click the File Types tab.
In the list of file types, click the one you want to change.
In Actions, click Open.
In Application used to perform action, enter the program you want to use to open files that have this extension, and then click OK.
The settings for selected file types are shown in File type details.

Thank you Richard for this information. It worked. Guess I should learn to use HELP more often. Sandy

You are very welcome. Glad I could help. I think all of us forget to use the Help function from time to time. ;o)
