how can I open a .pcx file using Wndows Media player, etc....I have Windows XP.
I hope it does not involve codecs as I know nothing about them even though I have heard and seen info on them....but if I need that, I'll try to learn what to do and how to get them for this file.

Thanks

PCX are also digital media files. You can use Mediafile Assistant to open it:

PCX files are picture or graphic files.  They do not need media player to open.  You can use MSPAINT to open them though.  Click on START, click on RUN ... and type "mspaint" and click on OK.  This is the most basic image editor I think anyone has ever seen and yet it is still quite useful

you can use other image viewers like adobe photoshop, irfanview, windows imaging (can select this from Start -> Programs -> Accessories -> Imaging)

and more.....

MS paint won't open it....it says it is not a bitmap file and not supported.

my accessories list does not include "imaging"

I'll try the media file assistant

It might be the size it was sent to you as - try setting the zoom to 100% in mediafile assistant
