    Default GIF files do not have animation

    My IT knowledge is really poor and I have a laptop which isnít connected to the internet. All .GIF files transferred to this machine open as a simple graphic file only (without any animation); however when these .GIFís are opened on my other machine (which is connected to the internet)í the files do have animation.

    What Iíd like to know how/what enables .GIFís to display their animation content?
    Is it simply by installing Ďa particular Adobe packageí, or is internet connection a necessity or is it something else altogether?

    Right-lick the GIF file > Open with > Internet Explorer. Does this work? If so set it to always open GIFs with IE.

    Else use File Association Fixer v2 for Windows 10 / 8 released to fix GIF file association fix and see if that helps.
