When you try to print a Web page using Internet Explorer or a HypertextMarkup Language (HTML) message using Outlook Express, HTML source code maybe printed instead of the Web page or message you are viewing.
This problem can occur if temporary files (.tmp) are associated with atext editor (such as Notepad).
To work around this problem, follow these steps:
- Click Start, point to Programs, and then click Windows Explorer.
- On the View menu, click Folder Options, and then click the File Types tab.
- In the Registered File Types box, click each file type one at a time, and then view the file extension under "File type details."
- If the file extension is TMP, click Remove, and then click OK.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.
When you print a Web page using Internet Explorer 4.0 or an HTML messageusing Outlook Express, it is saved as a temporary file before it isprinted. If temporary files are associated with a text editor (such asNotepad), Internet Explorer 4.0 or Outlook Express may mistake these filesfor plain text files and print the HTML code of the Web page or messageyou are viewing.
