Why can't I see some folders in FrontPage?

I have just re-installed FrontPage, but this may not be relevant.

When I open the web folder in Explorer I see a number of folders like HowToRegister_files containing my images.  (I think Frontpage created them.   I have webpages of the same name).  

When I open the site (local) in FrontPage I can't see these folders.

Anyone know why?  Thanks in advance.

If I remember correctly, these folders are creating when using FrontPage draw or WordArt.   In the images above, I see the HowToRegister_files folder in both the folder list from Explorer and FrontPage.

word also does this...

in frontpage you have to select site settings > show hidden files, also you may have to do that in windows explorer too....

hope that helps

Sorry, must have messed up when including the graphics.

Hidden Files and Folders is checked on.  FrontPage Folder List still doesn't show.  See attached grahics.

its word that has possibly created them, i always  copy the Word information to the clipboard and then paste it into Notepad to remove all of the extraneous html code. Then again copy from the Notepad file and paste into your FrontPage file.  that way i can delete the files

Yes, I think you're right.  Word did it.  FrontPage doesn't like it although I checked the code and there was no reason not to.  I'll follow your procedure.  Thanks
