Hello,

It is not allowed to edit Microsoft native webparts, but you can create another one or override them (if they are not sealed).

Here is the method:
- go to your webparts galery
- find the file of your webpart you are looking for (.webpart or .dwp)
- click on the button edit
- click "view xml" to download the xml declaration of the webpart
- you have here the assembly and the class name
- use reflector to make a copy of this class and edit it or inherit the class for making overrides (only if the class is not sealed)
- after you have created your new webpart class, deploy it in another .webpart or .dwp

=> Never edit Microsoft native code, just create your own by copying/overriding. It's important to prevent any problems when installing sharepoint updates.
