Internet Explorer JPG problem: can only save as BMP.
Article published on January, 2005.

When you try to save JPG or JPEG picture in Internet Explorer, the file can only be saved as BMP. The file name may also appear as Untitled.

This can be caused by various conditions. Could be full or corrupted temporary internet cache or maybe you have "Do not save encrypted pages to disk" selected. There are few methods how to fix this problem:

1. Delete temporary internet files. Open IE and select Tools -> Options -> click on Delete files:

2. Select Tools -> Options -> Advanced. Change the setting Do not save encrypted pages to disk by clearing the check box.

3. Switch off AOL graphic compression if you are AOL user.
