    Souce "file types"

    Hi,

    This might be a little off-topic, but I have removed a file from my "file types" in Internet explorer and now I can't see source code in Internet Explorer. (silly I know)

    Anyone know how to get this back?
    Im stuck without it!

    Open up any folder on your system, and go to View | Folder options...

    Go across to file types...

    Then you should find one that says "Text Document" or "Notepad file" etc...

    If there isn't then create a new one that says "Text Document"

    The (MIME) content type is "text/plain"

    and the extension is "TXT"

    REASON:
    When you view source code in Internet explorer, it creates a temporary file with the extension .TXT and then opens that file (with whatever is associated with text files).
