    Why won't my computer open JPG files?

    A:

    For a computer to open any file, it needs to have a program associating it with that type of file, so if a computer does not open a JPG file, the computer needs an associated program. Once this is in place, the computer opens that program any time a user directs it to open that sort of file.
