How to run the jigsaw puzzle: Sorry. At this time, the jigsaw puzzles only work with Internet Explorer. When you click on the thumbnail image, a small window will appear asking you if you want to run or save the file. If you choose run, you can play immediately. If you save the game, be sure to remember which folder you are saving it to. You can then double-click on the file and it will launch. Some browsers might also ask you which programme to open the game with. Ignore this. Another security warning may appear, telling you that the publisher could not be verified and asking you if you want to run the software. Select run if you wish to continue and play the game.
