I have recently copied some photos to my PC
They are saved as jpegs.
I can't get my computer to open them. I have tried using paint to open them without success.
Please can anyone help please/

many thanks

I'll assume that you use Windows 10.

Open the folder. Then try clicking [view] at the top with the red spot beside it and then clicking on [Extra large items] also with a red circle beside it. Are they showing up with the image in the file browser, as below?


Let me know if that helps Grin

Have you copied them as photos or as documents? You might want to click the documents folder to see if they are there. If so then you just click on the photo found there.It should then open. I don't like Windows 10's viewer. So, I use my editor''s viewer. I use an online editor named iPPicy. It is free. This is the program I use to view all my photos. You may care to try it.

You can download Adobe Bridge, it's free. It even shows thumbnails or RAW files from the latest cameras, jpgs and tiffs no problem.
