    Default Lost menu

    I am feeling rather stupid as I can't find a menu that I know is somewhere in my computer, as I have used it before, but I'm blowed if I can find it.

    My computer grinds exceedingly slow these days but I don't want to get a new one and have to learn Windows 7 and updated Office until I have finished with the annual magazine I edit at the start of each year. Santa brought me a new digital camera, and I downloaded the accompanying software without apparent problems, but the trouble is that ArcSoft MediaImpression Photo Viewer has now completely taken over and insists on opening all my .jpgs. It is a nice enough program, but it seems to take 15 seconds to load each .jpg, so I want to try and set my default viewer back to the Windows one. Then tonight my Outlook e-mail editor seems to think it is set to Word.

    Somewhere I know you can say which you want to be your default image viewer, e-mail editor etc, but can I find it?

    From the Outlook Help file ...

    1.From the main Microsoft Outlook window, on the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Mail Format tab.

    2.Select or clear the Use Microsoft Word to edit e-mail messages check box.

    Any use?
