    if none, then just OPEN the file and you will get a prompt for the program
    slide thru the list and pick the pgm you want to try

    Thanks JB,
    That was the first thing I tried but since the only program I have is MS Paint, I already knew that the message, "this is not a valid bitmap file or its format is not supported, etc. " would come up. I looked online for a ultility to convert a PCX file to a BMP file but didn't find one. I guess the next step is to find a (hopefully free) graphics program that can support a PCX file.
