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?????

The links are located in HTML page. I think I am just going to have to be content with the clunky way IE opens up the jpgs though. It looks so ugly, but there seems to be no easy way to get what I want.

Thanks for all the help, the answers were what I sort of expected I would get.

Thanks again....

Hi. Do you have control over this HTML page, meaning, can you modify it?

Okay, just as a long shot, I tried searching for maybe some sort of JavaScript you can use to execute when the user clicks on the link. But as Jack said, the consensus is this could potentially be dangerous, and the ones I found and tried didn't quite work out. You might try searching for it yourself and maybe you'll get lucky. Cheers!
