Use an Alternate Source Viewer with IE

When you view source in Internet Explorer, Notepad is launched as the text editor. If you want to change this, here’s how.

Navigate to:
HLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\View Source Editor\Editor Name

If the “Editor Name” key does not exist, create it. Set the “(Default)” value to equal the full path and filename of the required text editor, for example, “D:\Program Files\MyEditor”.

Just restart Internet Explorer for the change to take effect.


About This Blog

The Windows Registry is a database which stores settings and options for Microsoft Windows operating systems. It contains normally information and settings for hardware, operating system software, most non-operating system software, and per-user settings. Registry is used to optimize the security, enhance the functionality, modify the functioning of any software OR settings and many more.

In this blog I have tried to collect all the tweaks and hacks available on various website. I have tested many of these hacks before posting but still I would suggest you to take backup of your registry before trying any of these tweaks and if anything goes wrong while trying these hacks I or this blog will not be held responsible.
