    File Association


    I use MS Office 2003 with Frontpage which works well in Win and does all I need.

    How can I associate .html files to open with Frontpage.

    In Control Panel - set default programs it dos not show Frontpage as an option.

    In Control Panel set File associations - it currently shows Chrome as the default program. If I select Change program Frontpage does not appear as an option, if change program is selected. It must be possible because Frontpage shows as the default for .htt files (html templates)

    Have you tried rt clicking an html file, Open with, and following the menus through until you can browse for a program?

    Hi there. I remember going through this attempting to install O2000 on 8/8.1. As O2003 being rather outdated, it may take a Registry hack to force seeing it as a default. Here's something close that I found.

    So from Open With you're browsing with a window like this:
    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	1.jpg

ID:	162739

    and you have Frontpage installed on your PC but you can't find it?

    I'd suggest you identify where it's installed....
