Windows 7: .PNG Files, Not Have Difficulty Viewing

.PNG Files, Now Have Difficulty Viewing

No, I can view .PNGs but it seems like the procedure has changed since yesterday. The only change that I am aware of is that I loaded Quicktime.

Images that I have in Pictures (Start/Pictures) were accessible by simply double clicking on the thumbnail image.

Today when I do that (double click the .png thumbnail), a screen opens but no image. To view the image I must click on a banner that reads "Allow Blocked Content". Doing so opens the image.

Have I changed something that causes this.

Boy do I ever feel stupid. I have no problem except that my secondary monitor was turned off and I was attempting to make everything work on the primary monitor without setting the defaults for a single monitor.

I discovered what was happening when I decided to use the 2nd monitor, turned it on and found a whole stack images that I had been pulling up.

How dumb?
