    Question IE6 won't let me view source anymore...


    Internet Explorer v6.0.2800.1106 SP1
    Windows 2000 Pro SP3

    For some odd reason I cannot view source on web pages anymore... I restored IE6 to all defaults, as well as trying multiple editors under Internet Options > Programs. I also edited the registry key under

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\View Source Editor\Editor Name

    And I am still not able to do it... any ideas on what else I could try (besides a different browser )? Thanks alot.

    I've got the same set up as you and had this problem - cleared out my temporary internet files (using tools>options) and then manually went into the local settings>temporary internet files under my profile and deleted a few odd looking cookie files. Restarted IE6 and I could view the source once more. Hope this sorts it for you. I got this info from this link:

    The Administrator can also set it so nobody can view the source. I don't know hwo to do it/undo it but I know it can be done. My school admins do it.
