Dreamweaver 3.0, win 95
I am no longer able to view the HTML code by selecting the HTML source option under the Window menu.  The HTML Source option is checked but the window with the html source code is not appearing.  I have tried clicking on the icon in the bottom right hand corner but this does not bring up the window either.  Any ideas how to get the window back?

Clicking the <> icon did not display the source window. After clicking on <> I looked under the window menu to see if there was a check mark next to the HTML Source option.  There was a check mark but the HTML Source was not visible.  I thought maybe that it was just off the screen or minimized or something but I could not find it anywhere.

you have some problem with machine hang while you using dreamweaver?

maybe something wrong in your program (or windows?).

I suggest you to reinstall dreamweaver first!

I haven't had any problems with dreamweaver hanging while using dreamweaver.  I figured I might have to reinstall dreamweaver but I was hoping not to have to do that.  It's very strange because I have never had dreamweaver crash or my computer has not crashed with dreamweaver open.  It just all of a sudden stopped displaying the html source window.  I had the html source inspector open at one point then closed it to get it out of the way and when I tried to bring it up again it would not show up. I am going to try and reinstall and then see what happens.  Thanks for your help.

Can you change your display solution or set virtual screen? If your htmp source was display outside your screen it may help you.

It's funny that you mention that.  I just increased my screen resolution and found the html source window and moved it towards the top of the screen then set my resolution back to normal and it appeared.  It must have been displayin off the screen.  That is really annoying because I could not get at it at all until changing the resolution.
