I am doing an analysis on how a certain web page works.  How do you see all the files involved when you are taking a look at a web page?

What do you mean by "all the files involved"? Are you referring to the html, images, scripts, stylesheets, etc. involved? If so, have you tried Fiddler?

You can enable directory browsing server side.

I usually start by looking at the page source thru "View Source".  I prefer doing it with Firefox because it lets you click on the links and see them.  For a more complete list of files, you can use several methods.  One of the quickest ways to view a list is to go to Uptrends http://www.uptrends.com/aspx/free-html-site-page-load-check-tool.aspx and let it load the page.  It will display a list and show how big the files are and how long it took to load them and basically what order they were loaded.

However, this will not tell you what was in files that run on the server like PHP and ASP files.  It will only show you the results of running those files.

Is there a particular site you're trying to figure out?

if you use safari you can go to Window > Activity and see what external files are being accessed .

you can also just save the whole html page by doing a cntr+S or cmd+S for a mac to save the whole page. Make sure that you choose save whole webpage in the dialogue. Choose a destination and click ok.
Open up the folder where you saved the webpage and you'll see all the files involved in there. To see what is in the files a common texteditor is needed. I recommend Notepad++ for Windows and Komodo Editor for Mac.

Firefox and Firebug may be helpful.  Also, there is a web site copier called HTTrack.

Wget is a Linux command that can download an entire website. There is also a Windows version of it here.
