How far have you got with this?

game web

choose your game

<a href="" target="popup" onclick="'','name','width=600,height=400')">gameweb</a>
<hr />
 <body style="background-color:grey;">
<a href="" target="popup" onclick="'','name','width=600,height=400')">sans game window</a>
<hr />
<a href="" target="popup" onclick="'','name','width=600,height=400')">yt</a>

idk if u reply or not but it did not show up i did get a notifi but did not show up just wanted to tell u

You probably received a notification of a reply but it was a spam post and has been deleted.

If you want to make your <a> link look like a button, you need to apply styles to the <a> element itself.

Your <body> tag belongs at the beginning, but without the background-color applied.

This article might help some.

but how do u make it to where when u click the button it will open a file ik the other way

<form action="/action_page.php">
  <label for="myfile">Select a file:</label>
  <input type="file" id="myfile" name="myfile"><br><br>
  <input type="submit">

but for some reason it won’t work it says file move or deleted

A form won’t do anything without some server-side scripting.

What kind of file are you trying to open?

You cannot open a file from your harddisk. You can choose a file from your harddisk, which will then be send to a server for example. But you cannot execute this file or do other things with it.
