I have a problem with Internet Explorer: whatever it's the program selected
to see the source of a page, when I try to do that from the contextual menu,
I just see a window of Explorer which usually opens on the desktop folder.
Is there any solution to resolve this problem?


Thanks.

Open IE, click Tools menu, Click Internet Options, click Programs tab. Set your HTML
editor. Many use Notepad. There is a bug though if you use Notepad. If you have a
desktop icon for Notepad, and you click the IE view menu, then click Source, Notepad will
NOT open with the source code. So, I use a freebie Notepad replacement for my desktop
shortcut, and use Notepad to view the source code in IE. Or, if you do not use Notepad
often, and there's a desktop shortcut for it, delete that shortcut, and you could always
run Notepad from the Start menu/Run/notepad, or a Start menu item.
