I have a Vista OS and when I right click anywhere on my desktop, I see a menu appear. One of the options is "New". When I mouse over "new", I can create a document, image (bitmap), etc. However, for some reason, the option to create a new bitmap image is no longer there. It used to be an option, though. How do I add a program to the "New" menu option? Such as creating a new bitmap image. Thank you.
