Saving a .jpeg to desktop

Hi everyone

When i save a .jpeg to my desktop, the actual image shows on the desktop. Is there any way to to have it show just as .jpeg instead of the picture showing?

How do you save this .jpeg? What browser do you save it with?

Should right click on picture -> Save as.

I'm using IE8 and yes, i do a "save as" but i just want the word .jpeg to show instead of the actual picture.
