How to create main / index page

Its been a few years since i produced a website - i have a question about the Index page.    I created a page that is supposed to open first called Index.html    - when i go to the site i get a listing of all files, and the index.html does not open automatically.

Is there something i am supposed to do to the Index page to make it open when the site is accessed?  

I am using dreamweaver.

Is this on a hosted server or your own?  What web server software are you using?

Sounds like the default home page has not been set.  
If you have permissions to change .htaccess file in your index page directory you should add this rows to it:

Options All -Indexes
DirectoryIndex index.html

Open in new window

I figured out that i was spelling Index with a capital (Index vs index) and that if i changed it to lower case it now works.    Thanks for your input - I will divide the points.
