Hi all. When I go to help and support in my start menu, for some odd reason Dreamweaver opens all my links in Dreamweaver. I'm not Dreamweaver savy, I bought the suit for PS and Flash. I've looked in preferences, and can't really find a resolve anywhere there, so I turned to the forums. Thanks for any help, Jarod.
Look for a file on your system with a .html suffix.
Right click it and choose Open With > Choose Default Program
If Dreamweaver is selected...
Either choose a browser from the list (if present) or browse to whichever program you want to open those files (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, etc).
Make sure the "Always use the selected program..." checkbox is checked.
I've went to Control Panel>Programs>Default Programs>Set Associations, and I can't get anything there to help me. I'm lost I guess, but I really appreciate your help. Help and Support is the only place I'm having problems with. The image below shows what happens when I right click. Also when those links are clicked it opens Dreamweaver.
You need to find an actual .html file on your HD, any actual .html file will do.
Then follow the steps I gave you.
Right now, Dreamweaver is set up to display all .html files it appears. When you right click an actual .html file from your desktop (not from within that popped up window) you will get the options I discussed above.
Thanks Jon, I've followed your directions, and it is still opening in Dreamweaver. I saved an .HTML file to my desktop, right clicked it open with, choose default program, and chose Internet Explorer. It seems like IE was always my default, but something else is on the fritz here.
What you did there, I see it...
Which files are opening in DW (what does the top bar of the window in DW say)?
Would you look at that, mine does it too (DWCS4). It looks like the temp .js files generated by the System Information and HP Support Assistant pop up in DW. Weird. I'm still able to access the correct info as long as DW is open when I click the links from the Help and Support window though. I have no idea how to fix that, being they're temp files.
