How do I view graphics (jpg., gif., etc.) included in the text (not in attachments) of newsgroup postings with FreeAgent under Windows 95?  This is done automatically in Netscape, but I don't know how to make the required associations between graphic reader programs and FreeAgent under Windows 95.  The information given in their Help file is not clear to me.

The information in FreeAgent is for Windows 3.X, if I can trust my memory.

Under Windows95, you should not have to modify anything in FreeAgent, you only have to create file associations between your GIF/JPEG viewing program and Windows 95. This is how it is done :

Go in the Explorer, choose Details -> Options -> File Types
Then choose New Type, and fill in the description. Here is an example of what you might type :
Description of type :       GIF file
Associated extension :      .GIF
Content type :              image/gif
then click on "Action" New and choose the program to launch to view your GIF files

Repeat the process for .JPG and  .JPEG files and all should work fine...
