The information in this article applies to:

SYMPTOMS

When you click Customize This Folder on the View menu in My Computer or Windows Explorer, you may receive an error message indicating that your default HTML editor could not open the Folder.htm file.

If FrontPad is your default HTML editor, you receive the following error message:

   Couldn't open file <path>\\Folder.htm.

If you click OK, you receive the following error message:

   File doesn't exist.

If Notepad is your default HTML editor, you receive the following error message:

   Cannot open the <path>\\Folder.htm.
   Make sure a disk is in the drive you specified.

CAUSE

You have already customized the folder using the Customize This Folder Wizard.

RESOLUTION

To work around this problem, use your HTML editor to manually edit the Folder.htm file instead of running the Customize This Folder Wizard.
