    Opening web file in IE

    Hi, I'm brand new at creating a web page and thus I purchased a copy of "Build Your Own Web Site the Right Way Using HTML & CSS". I just don't know how to open the NotePad page I created using the IE browser. I have Vista if that matters. Can someone advise me without dying laughing?

    The simplest way is probably to drag the file's icon with your mouse, from the Explorer window to the IE window.

    You can also type in the full path of the file in the address field above the browsing area in IE. For instance, C:\web\test\index.html. Or you can use URL syntax (which works in other browsers, too): file://localhost/C:/web/test/index.html.

    The file I am guessing was saved as index.html (or htm), if so you just double click on the file and it will open in Internet Explorer.

    Or right click, and "Open width" and if you don't see IE there search for it in the "Program files" in the "C"
