    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.

    You would need to your desktop icons to display in list mode instead of icon mode. There is no built it way to do this with Windows 7. Maybe there are 3rd party apps for that.

    If you want to temporarily disable the picture, you can add your own extension after the .jpeg (ex: .jpeg.me) and then the picture won't show, but you won't be able to open the picture by double clicking on it until you delete that extra extension or right click it and choose open with...
