If you go to Edit/preferences(or ctl+U) preview in browser. tou will see a list of browsers or you cad add or edit. Make IE default and it will respond to f12, secondary browser will respond to ctl+f12

let me get this right

the browser is launching correctly but you are getting a localhost error?
you press f12 and the browser does NOT appear but a windows alert appears?which one of these is happening?


copy the full error excactly and paste it in here

I think david getting there now. I press f12 in dreamweaver and the browser DOES appear and the I.E. alert appear as : HTTP 404 File not found

this could be because your not uploading the page you have open to your live server

in the file panel select the file/page your working on then click the arrow button above the panel (arrow that points up - PUT)

once this has been done then try again with F12

I thought pressing f12 'puts' files automatically could it be the testing server is not set up correctly?
