Changing the text editor associated with IE?

Q: Changing the text editor associated with IE?

I used to use an HTML editor that asked me once whether i want it to display page source codes with IE or not. I clicked "yes" , then after some time i decided to just keep using notepad , but i couldn't do it through the editor.

Is there a way i can change it back to notepad in IE or the registrey?
Thanks for your time

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Text files were created within excel by concatenating cells in each row. Each row became a text file. The contents of the text file are the contents of an html file. After the text file is created I change the file extension of the text file to html.

I need a mass replace text editor so I can replace the word (paramark) in the txt file (to be renamed as an html file) with a real paragraph mark that shows as a paragraph mark in Front Page.

The problem with doing what I am doing is when all the cells are concatenated in Excel, all the html contents end up on one line rather than having paragraphs separate the html lines.

Example: The Way The HTML Code Should Be
<title>Memory Master Bible Memory Program - NIV - 1 Peter 4:9</title>
<meta name="Microsoft Border" content="tlb, default">

Example: The Way The HTML Code Turns Out After Using Excel To Create The File

<html><head><title>Memory Master Bible Memory Program - NIV - 1 Peter 4:9</title><meta name="Microsoft Border" content="tlb, default"></head>
I can place text to be replaced (paramark) next to each paragraph mark so if I can find a text editor to mass replace a real paragraph mark in place of the word (paramark) my problem is solved.

I have four thousand files to process so I need to do a mass replace across files.

Thank you in advance for any replies.

I am looking for an open-source web-based text editor that I could use on the back end of my website for developers. We are using a mySQL database with a php based form that allows a person to make changes to different web pages. We are currently using a plain white form that resembles a general <textarea> control in HTML. I have discovered only one on the web but it unfortunatley asked for globals to be turned on which would require me to redo my entire website, so clearly this is not the answer.

I've recently come over from XP and miss notepad and wordpad. Any simple replacements for Windows 7?
Also, I would like a simple, fast mp3 player to set as my default player for mp3 and wave files so I don't have to open iTunes every time I want to listen to a clip. Suggestions?

For both of these programs, simple and quick opening is a requirement.

Notepad and Wordpad are included with Win 7.

If for whatever reason you don't have them in your Start Menu, they are located at C:\Windows\System32.

Also, Windows Media Player isn't a bad alternative music player, it plays just about everything nowadays, except mkv's, and it's much less heavy than Itunes.

Although, a better alternative would probably be VLC, which is even more lightweight, and literally plays everything: http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

I used to have this DOS-based PIM/text editor that had this great template feature. You would create a template eg, for a form, repetitive note taking etc. as usual.
Here's the feature: You typed a closed bracket "<>" on the template then when you opened it and pressed the TAB key, the cursor went to the space between the bracket. At each bracket space you could enter a name, date etc. then press TAB again and go to another bracket. When finished, you saved the new document. The document printed without the brackets!
Can this be done on Word or a Windows word processor?

This may not be Windows specific, however I'm hoping someone might be able to help anyway. I'm looking for a CD ripping program that provides a way to edit the song titles for such things as having every word in the title begin with a capital letter.
I have many CDs (hundreds) that are not in any database such as FreeDB, MusicBrainz, CDDB or anywhere else on the net. That means I have to enter song titles manually. It would be great if there was a setting to bring up and change the way those titles appear so the data entry can be done in lower case, then have them all changed to begin with caps.
There was a program, EZ CD Extractor, which worked that way in earlier versions, but they removed that feature when it was updated a few years ago. Those old versions which have that feature won't run satisfactorily on Windows 10. Frankly the program was never that stable on Win 7 anyway.
I buy a lot of CDs that have just been released so no one has entered them into Freedb yet. Then there's homemade CDs that I've traded with people who just put random tracks together on a CD.
I also find a lot of Freedb matches in formats I don't like, such as all words except for prepositions in capital letters. I prefer all words in a title to be in caps so I have to manually edit those too. It seems like text editing would be a simple addition to a ripping program but I guess there hasn't been enough demand for it.

FYI, I'm not an expert in this area, I am simply sharing my experience so that others can avoid the frustration I felt. I just finished a bitter struggle to the end to reconcile the differences between my computer and a mysterious problem I was having using the Rich Text Editor on this forum. Okay, so that sounds a bit melodramatic.The story goes like this: I was experiencing two problems using the editor on here with RTE enabled (in my settings) and one with it turned off. FYI, I'm using FF10.After entering the full editor from Fast Reply, or after clicking Preview Post, everything in the editor would be formatted just as in the preview. Well, almost everything. Some things were wrong. That means that, instead of plain text with BBCode and emoticon code, in the EDITOR I saw the preview of the codes, and I couldn't edit the coding.
If I used list tags and either went from Fast Reply to the full editor, then previewed once; or if I previewed twice, some of the list tags would be displayed incorrectly. Usually the first one or two * would be okay but, after that, they'd be replaced by <li>. When I paid close attention, I noticed that the first time there was a preview in the editor, the affected list tags showed up as bullets, not numbers, and the second preview both the preview and editor showed <li> for the broken * tags.

There was only one way to fix this problem. Before pressing "Use Full Editor" or Preview Post, I had to cop... Read more

HI All,

Quick question for any web designers out there:

Just wondering what you all use for coding?

Me and my friend are just starting a little web design business but we argue over coding methods; I am used to using alleycode on Windows, and now Ive started to use linux I use screem on there - when I first began designing websites I got pointed away from word (hehehe) and was told to use something more like a text editor because it means you can make really clean code and have everything validated and that most WYSIWYG programs tend to add alot of extra code and go about things the wrong way).

My friend uses dreamweaver and whilst it doesnt code as bad as i had been told, it does tend to make heavy work of simple designs.

Imjust wondering what everyone else uses, wheather you can make really good pages with a text-editor and whether you can make W3C complient clean pages with dreamweaver.

A:Web design dreamweaver vs text editor

First, Techspot is not focused on coding techniques and you will get a bigger
population (and thus more replies) on some other boards.

However, your question is great as it says you're trying to plan ahead and start
off right. I'll give you my take, but understand, I am a purist and disdain GUI tools.
I what to know what is written so that I can change it if I desire to.
IF you use a TEXT editor, every line is yours and there's no surprises.
The really bad part of a GUI tool, imo, is that if you need to make a change,
you tweek the PRESENTATION, not the code. Sure it's what you want, but compare
the new file to the old -- massive changes result and finding exactly
that line that implements what you wanted is usually impossible.

Another issue with web page generation (as apposed to manual editing) is the
bloat and cruff that they generate. If you've ever see a Word.rtf file (in a text editor)
you'll understand immediately -- tons of stuff that is just not obvious
and sometimes it's not even references (ie: used).

Then too, the HTML,SCRIPTS, and CSS are just merged into one file --
not very effecient and makes the maintenance just that more difficult.
Lots of web designers don't realize that placing each resoruce in its own file
and using the appropriate < script scr="..." > </ script> or
< link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" title="xxx" href="pa... Read more

Hey all.

The situation is: I would prefer to use Firefox all the time but it doesn't sit well with Hotmail's rich-text editor. If you access Hotmail via FF and then try to reply a mail, the included original text turns into plain-text HTML code.

So I try to turn off the rich-text editor by using IE6 (WinXP SP2) to access Hotmail, but I can't. The same pop-up would come up warning that formatting will be removed from signatures and draft messages, and the rich-text toolbar would remain in place.

I looked at this post:
weblink = forums.techguy.org/showthread.php?t=390383&page=2
but it didn't help.

I've mailed MSN support and followed their suggestions (changed security and advanced options back to default) and still no luck. Am currently waiting for their follow-up mail.

I've replicated the problem on two different PCs and using two different Hotmail accounts. So I can safely assume that it's to do with the programming of that site?

Just want to put this out here to try my luck with you guys. Thanks.

p.s. Yes have considered moving away from Hotmail but I thought that there has to be a solution. M$ can't possibly force ppl to use HTML in Hotmail right?

I use MetaTrader (MT4) and it's editor which has context sensitive help.

My question is about how I can manually say by a .reg or? quicky util which does the same thing as IE does when view > text size

I am turning to this great forum because nowhere else can I get any response except the usual IE text size changing ideas. MT4 vendor MetaQuotes does not care nor offer any suggestions...

1. any time MetaEditor starts up it has unreadable help text size
2. which I can correct by stopping the editor then start up IE and set text size to large then set text size to small ie, toggle size UP then down
3. now I restart editor and the text size is readable. editor must be getting it's text settings from somewhere? or using IE rendering engine or XP functionality? ...
4. this small text size issue can happen many times during work day when for no apparent reason editor goes back to small help text and must do 2+3 above.

Perhaps IE must use registry? to record like state memory, the current view > text size setting and that MetaEditor must be sensitive to this?

But what gets me is that by going into IE and doing the view > text size when editor is still running and has the small text the text size action has no effect on editor [note that I escape out of editors help before doing IE action] when I reenter its help again the text still small - must actually kill off editor before IE action as explained above.

Hey guys, got a fairly simple request. I'm looking for a text editor similar to PSPad, that (1) allows you to open multiple documents (i.e. tabbed), (2) has a ruler, and (3) allows you to word wrap to the ruler.

You'd think this was pretty trivial, but surprisingly the several text editors I looked at didn't seem to support this out of the box. Or maybe my goggles are on too tightly.

As you can see in the screenshot, there's a nice ruler there in PSPad, and I've set the text to wrap to a specific column count (which I've highlighted using a red circle, in this case after 144 characters). I was thinking, surely this is a basic feature all the bajillion text editors out there have, right?

Strangely, the text editors I looked at either don't seem to have a ruler, or have tabs for multiple documents but don't allow you to shortcut switch between them (e.g. in PSPad I can hit Alt+3 to view the document in the 3rd tab), or force you to word wrap only to window size instead of letting you pick.

Reason? Well, as you can see in the screenshot, when I play RPGs I like to have guides on hand to look up - I've got 9 open there just for Star Ocean 2. But I'm also playing something else on another console, and I'd like to see the 5 guides for that one too. (Yeah, I'm a glutton.)

I wouldn't mind closing these 9 documents and opening the 5 for that other game, IF I could somehow get PSPad to remember these 9 (and the order they were opened in, i.e. the tab order). I don't... Read more

Hi, i have an email account with MSN hotmail and i have had it for a long time now, but recently i noticed that when composing messages the rich-text editor did not appear or appeared with icons missing or pictures or all the button missing or blank. I tried turning it off and on to see if they would appear but they didn't. If any one can tell me how to fix this it would be greatly appreciated, 'cause i like some color in my text!! Thank you

Would anyone know of a downloadable freeware, search & replace text editor that has the flexibility to allow line oriented deletions or insertions based on a key-word? More clearly, I wish, for example, to be able to find every occurrence of a specified word in the text and delete whatever follows it in that line of text; or insert a specified string after (or before) the word.

It would be nice if the editor could remove blank lines or groups of blank lines.

The freeware editors I have found do not seem to have such flexibility. They work on multiple files; I don't need that. One file at a time would be fine for me.

I have a system that was running Outlook 2002 and as word 2002 as its text editor and it has worked fine until recently. When I opened up Outlook 2k2 recently and tried to reply to a message, I received this prompt "This form requires Word as your email editor, but Word is either busy or cannot be found. The form will be opened in the Outlook editor instead. An OLE (?) registration error occurred. The program in not correctly installed..."

Does anyone know who to resolve this? I have attempted to repair Outlook using its built in repair utility but that did not fix it.

Please, help.


A:Solved: Outlook 2002 unable to use Word as Text Editor

The detect and Repair within Outlook will only fix Outlook issues. There seems to be a disconnect between Outlook and Word. Try using the repair installation options by popping the disk in or by using the Change option from Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel for Office Xp (You will need the disk either ways.)

If this doesnt work , then try removing the entire Office suite and reinstalling. You wont lose your Outlook data nor the other Office documents in case you were wondering.
