    "View Source" Trouble. Need Help. Please.

    I can view the source of a page, and it comes up in Notepad fine. But, once I close out Notepad, I can not view the source again. I click "View Source" and nothing at all happens. I am on Windows XP, using IE 6.0. I have signed off and then back on, but that didnt help. I have also restarted my computer multiple times. Both IE and Notepad work fine, no problems at all. I dont think that I have installed any new programs that would do this. All thats been installed lately is a few games. Any suggestions as to what I should do or what the problem may be? Perhaps a setting in IE was somehow changed that has something to do with the cache? Any help would be much appreciated. Please.

    Mhmm.. I have also run into this problem. I have Win2000 and IE 5.5

    Doesn't happen anymore tho --

    I know that doesn't help you too much

    Assuming right-mouse 'View Source' doesn't work either?? If the menu 'View' "View Source" doesn't.
    Odd.

    I'll be around to see what answers, if any ^.^ show up.

    Neither Right-Click or "View" works, so I have no way to view any source code. Is there another way for me to get the source of a page? Perhaps a site that can pull the source off the page for me? Any help would be appreciated. =)

    Revelle, how long did the problem last? Did it simply correct itself?

    another way of getting the code...

    you could "Save" the page onto your desktop and then look at the code with notepad. -- open notepad, then open the web page with it --

    And about the problem I had, to be honest I don't know how it was solved... all I know is one day, it worked and that was that.

    Never happened again.

    try this...

    type the following in your address bar & press enter:

    view-source:http://theurl.com/

    it should work.

    Hmm... perhaps try installing EditPad Lite (www.jgsoft.com) or HTML-KIT (www.html-kit.com) and see if the same thing happens with those - both of them should give you an option to always view source using them.

    (Or you should see the option on your toolbar to edit with the program).
