If you double-click XML file in the Windows
Explorer, you will bring up IE5 if you have
IE5 installed at your computer.
However, people need to edit XML file frequently.
Here is How I do it.
In Windows explorer,
1) find wordpad.exe and make a copy using mouse
2) find sendto folder and paste your copy of wordpad to "sendto"
From now on, if you need open an XML file,
you can right-click it and "send to" wordpad.
This is my procedure to deal with Xml file and properties file
Of course, you can also add notepad.exe,
UltraEdit, .... and other editors to "sendto".
Remember, don't double click XML file
if you have an IE5 because it is the default
opener of XML files.
Hope it helps
