Cannot save jpg photos attached to an email

    When I click to open a jpg image file in my computer, it automatically opens in the default full-screen "app" ("Photos" or "Pictures" or whatever it's called). When I right click on it, the only menu that appears is a bar across the bottom with the options:

    "Set as" "Delete" "Rotate" and "Crop."

    When I right-click on a thumbnail of an image in PSP, the options are:
    Copy to..
    Delete
    Move to...
    Rename
    Send to StudioAvenue.com
    Information...
    Open
    Print multiple images
    Preferences...

    The "Open" option just opens the image, and right-clicking on it does nothing.

    Any other ideas?

    I don't know what kind of windows is that, ever since XP and maybe before including W8.1 it works like that. Here's another way, a bit more complicated.
    Control Panel > Default Programs > Associate a file type or protocol with a program > here you can scroll down till you find .JPG extension. If you click on it you can go to "Change program" button where you can choose which program to open that type of file with.

    Thanks, that worked to a point. When I get to "Associate a file type or protocol with a specific program", I find "jpeg" associated with "Photos". When I highlight that and click on "Change program" it shows a list of Microsoft products, and at the bottom is the option "Look for another app on this PC". When I click on that it brings up the file manager and I can locate the PSP program, but when I select it I am merely shown a list of folders and files within PSP. I don't see any way of selecting PSP itself.

    I appreciate your help very much.
