Problem: I have an image on the desktop or some other\015\012folder and I cannot view it or open it. It does not matter if I double\015\012click on the icon or right click and select preview or "open with" and "Windows Photo Gallery".\015\012It doesn't matter if it is a jpg, bmp, png, gif or some other image\015\012file format I'm still unable to open the image. If I right click and\015\012edit the file it opens up in my image editor. File association works as\015\012I can open pictures in other locations. The problem is the same if I\015\012have a shortcut to an image. I have Windows Vista SP1 installed.

Solution: If any Internet shortcut has an URL with 260\015\012characters or more you will find that you cannot open any picture file\015\012in that folder with Windows Photo Gallery. Right click on any shortcut\015\012and on the Web Document tab you find the URL. When you delete or move\015\012this shortcut to another folder it will work again. If you have hard to\015\012find the shortcut or shortcuts you can create a folder and move half of\015\012the shortcuts to that folder and then try to double click on the image\015\012again and that way isolate the problem.

There is obviously a bug in Windows Photo Gallery and an alternative\015\012solution is to change the default application for viewing your photos.
Depending on the type of file you are downloading, If its a Jpeg. Windows Fax & Picture viewer should open it.

Check the file extension that you downloaded and verify it is an Image file i.e (bmp, tiff, jpeg, gif)... Then, right click that file, choose properties and see Which program opens it.

If there isnt a default setup Click on Change...and choose Windows Fax & Picture Viewer502fd15.jpg
