Can't Edit IE Pages with HTML-Kit
HTML-Kit not a choice for HTML Editor in Internet Options

I just aquired a new laptop running Windows Vista and IE 7.x.

I used HTML-Kit to develop webpages, and it is setup within HTML-Kit to allow me to edit HTML webpages from IE from a right click on the page. The only problem: There's no option when I right click on an HTML page.

So I went into Internet Options, Program, and there is an drop down box that will let you choose your HTML Editor. The only program - only Notepad shows up as an HTML editor in the drop down.

Can someone with IE 7.x and HTML-Kit assist with me with this? I can't imagine I'm the first person with this issue.

Can't answer for Vista, but on XP, you can go to Windows Explorer (the normal viewing window for folders on your PC), select Tools->Folder Options->File Types, select the HTML filetype, click Advanced, then edit the settings under the "Edit" action to use HTML-Kit. If the Edit action does not already exist, then you can Add it.

You may have to repeat this for HTM, SHTML, and SHTM filetypes (plus any others you wish to edit), but I have found that Windows copies the settings from HTML to HTM, for example -- if I am remembering correctly.

If this doesn't fix the problem entirely, it should at least add HTML-Kit to the list of HTML editors in the IE Options dialog.
