Snagit 11 has stopped working free
I believe there is a typo in the naming of the HTTP response header. That what you don’t need neither to modify the page what usually is not up to you , neither to insert a registry key that is a intrusive operation in the user machine “. I have a website which uses windows authentication and when i access it in IE browser it ask for user name and password in a prompt.
But if i access the same url from Microsoft Web Browser active x control it is not asking for Username and password, it shows a blank page. Santosh – that works for me. You may not be asked for permissions on a local domain – it may just automatically log you in. I have to display in the webcontrol object of a simply vb net application, a simply html page. What i see is different from what i have designed, so i tried to use the meta tag attribute.
Even though I added it loads on IE 11 and not edge. How can we force control to use IE edge without using registry? Used below script to check the version. At this point you probably should just force IE 11 given that it’s the browser that will be used on most machines Win7 forward via install or Windows Update. This article is really great, I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve been referencing it in the last 3 years!
Can the browser compatibility mode be used also to affect how CHM files are viewed in Windows? This would be great, since I’ve noticed that currently CHM files offer poor html support — e.
Tristano – yes you can use it on CHM, but it’s a global setting. You have to set it on hh. Thank your prompt reply Rick — and forgive me for this late response, but my PC crashed and had to reinstall from scratch, and I’ve just managed to recover this link now that I’m back working on my project. I’ve read the article you’ve linked, very interesting and well written.
This is exactly what I feared, ie: a setting that would affect all CHM files. So, I guess it would be a bad idea as this might compromise how some CHM Helps are displayed, especially those whose author has strived to beautify with custom CSS. Usually CHM authors expect hh. It’s a pity that Microsoft didn’t come up with a similar registry key for CHM files, which the help viewer could check before opening the CHM file.
I mean, this issue of the WebBrowser control has a long history, so MS could have thought of this, but apparently they didn’t. From what I understood, currently MS has no plans to drop the old WebBrowser control in favour of an Edge-based modern control. I wonder why that is.
I haven’t had a chance to actually use them, but I’ve heard of a. I find it really frustating that the WebBrowser control limitations have prevented the creation of some cross platform system for local HTML-based documentation. The reasons that got me to this article are that in the past I’ve worked a lot with executable ebooks or “compiled websites”, as they were often referred to.
They were quite trendy in the late 90’s, but then faded away; one of the main reasons being lack of cross plaformness, but also the WebControl IE7 limitation. Unfortunately, none of these eBook compilers have been updated to add the registry hack to emulate IE Some eBook compilers offer some custom scripting extensions allowing to tweak the registry, this allows creating workarounds to fix the web browser compatibilty issue I’ve managed to achieve it with 2 eBook compilers, but none of the solutions was too elegant in the end.
For a long time I’ve been tinkering with the idea of creating an eBook compiler that would produce cross-platform HTML documentation in a self-contained binary. When Chromium came out I though it would finally be possible, but then I saw that you can’t create a standalone binary using CEF — lots of dynamic libraries, and quite heavy too.
If West Wind Html Help Builder could create cross platform binary standalone documentation files, whose contents can’t be hacked, it would be really superb. Currently documentation is always a problem in cross platform applications, as there is no equivalent of Windows CHM Help system on other OSs especially when it comes to jumping to a specific Help entry.
This is a huge gap that has yet to be filled — and probably because no one has pushed hard enough to do it. Executable eBooks are the closest solution I’ve seen so far to replacing CHM help iles, except that all such compilers relied heavily on MS WebControl and no one looked on how to implement the same on Linux and Mac.
I guess you must have given your own thoughts on this very issue, having developed West Wind Html Help Builder and Markdown Monster , and realizing how important documentation is, and that most of today eBook like standards are not really concerned with protecting the contents. It would appear that this shortcut changed when the MSDN article was moved from the referenced location to an archived “previous-versions” location. I’ll echo the many other comments – fantastic article.
My language is Delphi , and the Registry Hack was exactly what I needed. Works fantastic in HKCU. Like you, I use inno setup, so your example saved me a little time there.
Perhaps most importantly, you deserve recognition, not only for a great article, but for how well you support and respond to all the comments that have been made over the years. Hats off to you. Hi Rick First of all can I add my thanks for this webpage- now 7 years old but still the best reference for this issue.
I have been successfully using code in Access for users to get their current geolocation. All worked fine until the latest Windows update to version Since then IE reports that ‘the geolocation service failed’ If I load the same file into Edge, the correct location is still obtained. The same issue can be seen by loading the w3schools geolocation feature which uses similar code to mine in different browsers.
Not sure any issue with outlook. The web page is not being displayed properly. It gives some script error. However the same web page is properly displayed when i try to open from a stand alone Microsoft IE I tried adding the key in the registry setting with a value for IE However it did not help. After the registry setting, when i try to run that software that hosts the web browser control, it shuts down immediately. Any help is much appreciated in this case.
Well done Rick, thank you! It was just for a personal project automating collection of my smart-meter daily half-hour usage data, for which my electricity provider has so far failed to produce a simple downloadable. However, a text listing for each daily set of data is available about clicks-down following login Oh great Your article, 15 minutes, including a built-in reg check at program start-up in case I ever migrate the program to another machine and forget what to do – Problem Solved!!!
You don’t need to reboot, but you have to restart the application. This was helpful for finding out if Rick’s registry solution worked for a WPF application I have no control over.
And it did, thank you Rick! This is very useful for cases where I have control over the content. I can’t use the registry settings for vfp9. I found that a registry key value of 0 seems to behave like “latest installed”. No indepth investigation but 0 works fine for me with wwhelp. For Foxhhelp9.
This made it work on one machine. Thanks for this. We have struggled with this problem for years IE compatibility mode warnings. Your suggested solution solved all our issues. Thanks so much!

Vish May 24, Very useful and timely for me : One question I had that I thought you might be able to help with was whether application configuration is done only name.
So, if there are multiple apps with the same name on the machine, all of em are forced to use the same IE settings? Thank You, Vish. Rick Strahl May 24, But that begs the question. Mark June 19, It is a little hard to understand why the WebBrowser control does not default to using the highest version of IE installed but I suspect people much brighter than I have a defensible reason. Kind Regards Mark. Rick Strahl June 20, I recently switched an app over to IE9 operation and that broke a ton of functionality which I had to work around with client side script code called from the host application.
It took a lot of experimenting to get this right because it now has to work with both old and new versions of IE testing is a lot of fun for this.
By specifying the version in the registry you tie an application to a specific version although you still have to deal with downlevel support for older browser installs – yuk. Incidentally this version switching scheme is an excellent way to let you test operation under various versions of IE :- You can have an app hosted in the Web Browser control and manually or via code switch the registry values to use a different version of IE.
Andrew Duthie June 23, This was just what I needed. Putting together something for a demo, and your post just saved me a ton of work. Richard September 14, There should at least be a property we can set to enable this, without having to elevate and hack the HKLM hive of the registry!
As for having multiple settings for the same exe name, what if two vendors produce applications with the same executable name? Vendor A wants their “helper. With the current system, there’s no way to have both applications working on the same PC at the same time. Role September 15, Rick Strahl September 16, Anything in the HTML document is too late to switch engines.
Then there’s the issue of what’s actually installed on the the machine. Obviously you can’t render IE 9 style if IE 9 isn’t installed ;-. That’s good to know. Incidentally I’ve had a heck of a time trying to automate the new Range API even knowing that it’s different. It breaks inconsistently and causes all sorts of headaches. Will give the old API a shot and see if that helps. Richard September 19, You can even use the developer tools to switch the browser and document modes on the fly.
All I’m saying is, we should be able to have this level of functionality within our own applications, without having to hack the registry. As it stands, Chromium is looking like the better option.
Rick Strahl September 19, But it is what it is – AFAIK this is the only way to get later than IE 7 behavior in the Web Browser control and while it’s an ugly, ugly hack to have to resort to the registry its something that can be easily enough handled by an installer.
If there’s another way I’d love to know about it. I would love to make this user selectable with a switch so they can determine what they see! Especially given IE 9’s mungled ClearType only rendering that can’t be turned off and which drives me nuts and is the main reason I don’t use IE 9.
Bernard Bout October 21, Anil October 22, Its worked by adding my application name vfp9. Any specific reason? Rick Strahl October 22, There’s some overhead in the ActiveX container as it has to fire events into the container – if FoxPro code runs in response to anything in the DOM it’ll likely slow the browser down quite a bit.
Why would there be errors in IE9 or IE7? It sounds like IE is actually rendering in the right version, but the pages you’re accessing are maybe generating errors? Make sure you set both 32 bit and 64 bit keys if you’re running on Windows 7 so settings apply to both versions of IE if you install the 64 bit version often the 32 bit version runs anyway especially via COM automation.
Also remember that VFP9. For your own app you have to add another key for the actual EXE name in the registry. Anil October 23, LambertWM November 13, I also appreciate your remark about not forgetting the to add a key for “yourapp.
SebH December 29, But what about if using a dll instead of a. What value should have then key? Rick Strahl December 29, SebH December 30, So there’s no way for me : I’m using a.
IE6 websnapshots from Tonec If one day i find how to, i’ll post the answer there ;. AshB January 10, Your post has saved me a lot of pain. Phillip February 02, I can’t tell you how many hours and days i have researched and tried all sorts of things to get the webbrowser ctrl out of ie7 mode. Serveral posts I’ve seen hinted to it, but I couldn’t find the answer anywhere.
You totally blew me away when i found this post. I use the webbrowser for Editing and display extensively in my app for users to create markup which gets inserted in emails or web page content. The ie7 code with all caps tags, invalidated xhtml. Again, Thanks a ton Rick for posting this, and writing it so clearly too! Your posts are golden. That solved the createRange issue. This is important for me, since it allows users to specify the default value of an input element in wysiwyg mode.
It appears that the rightmose side of the document’s content always goes underneath the Vertical scrollbar. This happens no matter how wide your control or content is.
It seems to be a bug in the control. It’s not recognizing the bounds of the vertical scrollbar. This does not happen in ie7 mode. The right-most side of the block element will always display underneath the vertical scroll bar, no matter what you do.
If anyone is able to resolve this, please reply. TIA if anyone can shed light on this probable bug. If I resize a block element Div, Input, etc by dragging the handles of one dimension width or height , it “always” increases the other dimension also. I can’t figure why. It does not matter if I have the registry hack for vfp9. Simply the Doctype seems to be causing this. Related: Fix slow Microsoft Outlook emails.

Great summary. Windows Office — the whole office word, excel, outlook, PowerPoint were running slow, lagging and responding slow, Uninstalled 32bit office and installed 64bit office.
Running great now! I was confused as to why Word was slow when I tried to open it, it would take mins while PowerPoint, Excel and Publisher opened in just secs. I just deleted the Normal.

It should have a warranty period to cover up the cost. Deleting the normal. Disabling the hardware acceleration seemed to help quite a bit although I have a powerful system. I then went to delete the temp files. One of them deleted nearly all of my documents it did seem like a lot.

Hi, just wanted to say thank you so much for this information. So comprehensive, I keep an icon on my taskbar. What’s not to love? Method 3, just an app, doesn’t work for me. I didn’t even know it was possible. Add a dropbox or other recipient which accepts any files, and you can save the screenshot there. Whoa, neat. Definitely missed that and will add. Can vouch for greenshot. Best software for screenshots.
Also has built in imgur integration for those who like posting on reddit. It allows you to do a screen clipping with your mouse and will put it into a new note, or copy to clipboard for whatever your heart desires.
Wow, thanks! I didn’t know this, obviously. Double-clicking the pen to capture the screen no longer works on my Surface Pro 3 since I upgraded to Win Customizable shortcut keys, too. I have a problem when i press the purple button on my surface pen, it always asks me to put in my password. It doesn’t open OneNote automatically like it used to in 8.
I haven’t changed the sign in options since 8. I copy to the clipboard. Very lightweight, several options custom screenshot name, save location, format and more. Can auto start with the system and the best part is that you can set custom hotkeys for taking a screenshot of the whole screen, active window, selected region.
You can choose a key combo or, what I do, simply pick a function key for each. It’s my favourite. There’s also DuckCapture. Both free :. Don’t forget another hidden gem that Microsoft never talks about, Problems Steps Recorder. Just download “Lightshot”. Best software for this purpose. And what if I only use touchscreen? You can use game bar too xD. I didn’t know about this! Print screen like a pro lol. FastStone Capture. Can we change the default hotkeys?
I thought I was smart and replaced my standard keyboard with a Logitech wireless on for the livingroom. So it’s more condensed and missing a printscreen key. Any suggestions? EDIT: Used the on-screen keyboard and it lets me perform screencaps with the virtual printscreen button. Don’t know why but none of these are working for me?!? Today is different.
