4839Re: Can't set Note Tab as default editor in IE any more
- Oct 1, 2004Hi Marcelo,
Thanks, it worked :)
I had the other options that you suggested already selected in my
folder options, but I did not have the "Hide Protected operating
system files" unticked. When I unticked it, I could see the
C:\WINDOWS\system32\dllcache folder, as you said, and when I renamed
all three of the notepad.exe files, (the one in that folder) also
those in the C:\WINDOWS\ServicePackFiles\i386 and in the C:\WINDOWS
folder, then opened NoteTab and went to "Help" in the drop down
menu, at the top of the screen and selected "Replace MS Notepad..."
it really did replace Notepad and now NoteTab is back as my default
editor when I click on View/Source in Internet Explorer.
I renamed the original notepad.exe files as notepadold.exe.
Thanks very much for your help. It is great to have NoteTab back,
as I want it. :)
