Here is the deal! I need to know if theres a way in win98 to find out if a picture file has been open? (want to know if wife saw it)
How can I check if a program has been executed? or if a file has been open?
I know you can use file find and last updated in let say 1 day. but that is only if file has been updated.  If you open a jpg it doesn't update.  Is there a way?

Did you try using the "find" then click on the Date tab, then click on "find all files" and in the drop down menu select the "accessed" then select the last day or what ever you need to use.

In case you didn't understand where the "accessed" is, click on the drop down menu with the options "modified", "created", "last accessed"

if it returns too many files on a find you can just find the file in windows explorer, right click it, select properties and check when it was last accessed

hmm...nevermind...i guess it updates too fast and shows you the last access as being right now...

With the way I suggested you can have it look on a certain day to see if that file has been accessed

U have two situations;

a; go to DOCUMENTS on the menu choices at start-up. that is where
recently seen jpegs are often seen and downloaded.
[a previous answer also was exc; most recently seen]

b; there are many programs now that allow you to secure single
jpeg files so that only you can see them!
