Can't view source
Suddenly, I can't view source. Nothing happens; no message.
I've check the Microsoft Knowledge Base, and can't find anything relevant. (For example, I have a valid TEMP setting, and I have Notepad installed.)
I've also tried reselecting my Editor (InternetOptions|Programs|HTMLeditor). A bit strange. There were three entries, as follows:
Notepad (yes, a second entry)
I've tried selecting various ones, to no avail. When I selected "AceHTML4 Freeware", an extra option got added to the list ("AceHTML4 Freeware Executable").

Re: Can't view source
I've been bugged with this for months too, I suspect ever since I installed NS . . . or FP . . <img src=/S/thinks.gif border=0 alt=thinks width=15 height=15> .
However, I think I've got close to the problem:
I found, through:
Explorer | Tools | Folder Options | File Types
then selecting 'HTML', clicking Advanced, selecting 'Edit' then clicking Edit, the chosen program was:
"D:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOfficemsohtmed.exe" %1
Using Browse, I selected notepad.exe instead - but no-go. The change would not stick.
I navigated to find this 'MSOHTMED.EXE', and double-clicked it. Nothing.
So I renamed it 'xMSOHTMED.EXE'
I can now view source from a right click in IE.
When opening FrontPage, I get a 'Preparing to install' window.
Cancelled that, went back and renamed 'xMSOHTMED.EXE' back to 'MSOHTMED.EXE'
Now FP starts without grumbling and I can view source in Notepad.
And it's survived a re-boot!
Gotta be worth a try.Leif
