Inserting an obect


I am having an issue loading an image (jpg) into a draft. On my computer it works fine. It is recognized as a paintbrush picture but if I try to do the same steps to insert the picture on a colleagues computer it is saying it is a HTML file. any thoughts as to why this is happening. 


Sketching>insert object>create from file>browse>select file


I have attached word document that contains screen shots of the differences. 

Thanks in advance for any help provided!!

It is most likely caused by a filetype association in Windows. For some reason, the .jpg extension is associated with viewing in a browser instead of with an image viewer.

1) Install or reinstall an image viewer to reassociate the filetype.
2) Right click on a jpg file on his computer, select Open With, and choose a new default program.
