I hope I am posting this in the right forum, if not someone can move it if they want. I have a series of links that open up jpg files. They open in Internet Explorer which opens them up but the image is on the left side of the screen and it just looks bad. I want instead to use Windows Photo Viewer instead which opens them image centered. Is there a way in html to tell the link to use that application? I hope I explained that well. Also Chrome and Firefox opens the images fine in the center, why does IE not do that?????

Well I looked up and down for a way to get the Livelink link to open using a modal popup but no success. This has frustrated me to no end. I hate saying something cannot be done, but in this instance I am going to throw in the towel for now.

I know I made some bad remarks regarding IE, I get so frustrated when I cannot get something to work the way I would like. I loved the way Chrome opens up the jpegs, it looks better having the pictures centered.

Thanks everyone for the assistance. I actually got to learn quite a bit about a few things.

LeeAnn,

Take a look at the following little demo I put together for you. I don't know if this will work with live link, but it may be worth a quick try.

I may look at it Daniel but I think I found a way to get the thing to work (not like I want but good enough for me to be happy with). I placed the LiveLink link as the image source on the web page (I did not think this would work because it was so simple so I did not bother trying at first). I opened the page and it brought the image up in the center of the screen after I made the style for it. Really funny as I should have tried it the first time. I am getting the customer to look at the work and am hoping they are happy with it. I just don't like things that look ugly and having the picture line up on the left of the screen just does not look good.

Moral of the story, sometimes you have to think simple. Thanks for the help everyone.

Isn't that the truth. We so often get in our own way by over thinking things. That's why these forums are great sounding boards. How many times have fellow developers told me 'just do this' or 'use this built-in function' when I was trying to develop custom code... But these situations also help us grow as developers. Mistakes and problems like this one are great learning tools/opportunities!

The webbrowser control can actually be quite a nice thing, since it can allow you to bring powerful web libraries 'into' access. So you can add functionalities that are part of Access, from the realm of the web, into Access. For instance, to do some awesome charting you can use https://www.chartjs.org/ in combination with data from your tables. The sky is the limit!
