    I have a diskette with no idea how to view the pictures on it. I have
    inserted it into the computer, clicked on Run, but then I don't know what to
    type. Do I save it to something first? I obviously am a newbie. Thanks
    for an explanation.

    Open My Computer - there'll be an entry there for it.

    Double click "my computer" icon.
    Your drives will be listed.
    Click the "A:" drive to view the contents of the floppy.

    If you are talking about a floppy you view it in "My Computer" and click on
    "A" drive. The information on the diskette should then show up and if the
    image is a jpg say you double click on it and it should show up in the
    default image viewing program.

    If it's a 31/2 inch floppy, type run, then A;\ in the space. When it
    shows up in the programs, click on open. Or go to FILE and print it out.
