Can you give a screenshot to show the issue.

You will need to use a web hosting service to make a URL of the image. Replying to the automated email and attaching a file doesn't work.

Thank you for answering, but don't know how to do "use a web hosting service to make a URL of the image".
Please guide me on this.
Thank you

Something like imageshack or Dropbox public, make a URL of the image.

Dont know if this is correct I Download “Dropbox” user name: L. M. Jacinto and have a screen shot
link “Screenshot from 2016-10-25 06-13-13.png”. Hope this is correct.
On Top Left of the window you see maximize icon only, I cant drag the page at all.

No as it's not clickable. We need a URL so we can view an image, like the one below:

See how that is a URL and clickable. We need this

Install Dropbox and experiment with the application I got to the following URL I tried and worked
hopping this is correct now.

Cannot drag the page found Terminal, Ubuntu Software, and other applications the same
Thank you

Spot on :)

The link doesn't seem to work though but it's that sort of thing
