"View Source" doesnt work ...

  *mark 21:42 05 Feb 03

When I right click my mouse on a web-page and click "View Source" in order to view the HTML absolutely nothing happens. (Im running WindowsXP-Home btw.)

Do you have any idea what the problem might be ?

Any help appreciated.

is notepad set as your default html editor? internet properties,programs,and select notepad.

Any more idea's ?

VoG - Are you sure that IE6 is the thing causing this and is that the only way it can be fixed ? Ive never attempted anything in the Registry before and if I get things wrong I will have to reinstall Windows.

As ive only had my new PC for 6 days im going to have to put your suggestion on the back burner untill im satisfied this machine works ok.

Is there another way to try and rectify the problem ?

Many thanks,

This is the first time that you have mentioned how long you have had the pc. Take it back and demand that it is fixed immediately or replacement machine or your money back.

does this happen with every site or just a few? since some sites disable the viewing of the source code
