    How to make Konqueror open HTML files


    I am on Fedora Core 3 / KDE 3.3.
    I had an HTML file on a directory, and while browsing the directory with Konqueror, I clicked on it. Konqueror, as you can expect, opened the file and showed me my nice HTML file, with its beautiful tables and images.
    Then I wanted to see the HTML source. I right-clicked on the file, chose Open With, typed "Kate", and asked it to remember the association.
    Now every time I click on the HTML file, instead of viewing it, Konqueror opens Kate to show the source.
    How do I turn it off ? How can I make Konqueror open HTML files in itself ?

    I'm not 100% sure about this one, but can you right click, and "open with"?

    You just have to re-associate the *.html file type as you did in the first place (and as Ugo suggested). If that doesn't work, however, I'm pretty sure you can do this from Kontrol Panel somewhere.

    Thanks all, it worked.

    Thanks all, I just found the solution.

    Right-clicking and using "Open with" does not work, as Konqueror pops a new window to view the file.
    I had to reassociate the file in Control Center (Fedora's Control Centre).

    Open Control Center, choose "KDE Components", "File Associations", find html in the document tree. On the right of the window, there is a two-tab frame. Choose "Embedding", and select "Show file in embedded viewer".
