Chapter 8. Managing Files Using Web View > Creating Custom Web Views

Creating Custom Web Views

There's no particular magic to Web view. When you display a folder's contents and choose View, As Web Page, you instruct Explorer to look in the current folder for two files:

  • DESKTOP.INI lists shell objects that allow the folder to interpret HTML code and display files in a defined region within the folder. It also includes pointers to custom HTML templates and/or background images for the folder. If this file does not exist in the current folder, Explorer uses default settings.

  • FOLDER.HTT is a hypertext template file that defines scripts, objects, and HTML code that allow files to be displayed. If this file does not exist in the current folder, Explorer uses the default file in the Windows\ Web folder. You can customize this template file, and you can use a file with a different name by specifying it in DESKTOP.INI.
