Make Word 2013 HTML editor
Posted on 2014-04-03
I just setup a new computer for a user. It has IE11, Office 2013 and Windows 7. As part of her job she needs to be able to edit HTML files in Word. In the past I could just go to Internet Options, Programs tab, and change the editor from Notepad (Default) to Word. Now, however, Word 2013 does not show up in the editor field - only Notepad. I have run into this before and in the past I was able to add word by hitting F12 on an internet page, go to the file menu and manual add Word into the list. I have also tried changing HTML document in file association to point to Word but it still reads Notepad in IE.
Now, however, Internet Explorer 11 has changed the F12 developer menu and either they changed the HTML editor option so I can't find it or have taken it out completely.
Is there anything else I can do to add Word as the HTML editor option? I have seen some mention of editing the registry directly and I have tried this in the past as well but it has never worked for me.
