Default editing html or htm file

Everytime I try to edit an html file or htm file, it opens up in Word.

I have it set under options, file associations to open with internet explorer.

Does anyone know how to make it open in internet explorer to edit it.

It opens in internet explorer to view it, but not to edit it.

Default Editing in IE?

As far as I know you can't edit anything directly in IE.

It is a browser not an editor.

You can edit using internet explorer, you view the source file and make your changes and save it.

But when I click edit, it opens up in word. I don't want to use word to edit my website, it's changes all the code.

I wouldn't care if it opened in notepad, but for some reason it opens in word.

I really like this program, works good for me, but if I can't edit, then it I can't really use it.

Options menu, File Associations. configure html/htm viewer and editor there. do not put IE there but actual editor you want to use

Hi,
I'm having the same issue with word loading up the files when I try editing them and I have already have my text editor set for the html/htm/shtml/php/asp files in the File Association area. Is there another setting I need to change somewhere?

those are not valid file masks
they need to be in *.html format.
having just '.html' makes flashfxp think that you want to edit file called '.html'
