finrock, Notepad & Wordpad can open .txt files but not image files like ,jog, .gif, .bmp. What are the file extensions of those files you can't open?

Hi;
The file extension is .pps it also has a symbol that looks like a piece of paper with one corner folded over and a blue symbol inside the paper.

Finrock, To view a .pps file you need a powerpoint viewer which you can download for free at the link below. Download it then install it.

Thanks;

Now I get a message that "file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in folder options control panel". I found the contol panel but don't know what to do to create an association.

Finrock, Follow the instructions at the link below. The PPSFix utility is easy to use.

Edited to add: Finrock, By chance are you in Oregon as there' a Finn Rock on the McKenzie River?
