How to Open .XML Files in Internet Explorer

It is not difficult to open an XML file in Internet Explorer. In most cases, you can simply double-click on the XML file and it will open in IE. If that doesn’t work, try the following:

1. Right-click on the XML file.
2. Select “Open With.”
3. Choose “Internet Explorer.”

If you still can’t open the file, it’s likely that your computer doesn’t have the proper software to open XML files. In that case, you can download and install a program like XML Notepad 2007.

What is an XML File?

An XML file is a file that contains data in a structured format. XML stands for eXtensible Markup Language, and is a standard for storing data in a format that can be read by computers. XML files can be opened in any text editor, but are best viewed in a web browser.

Internet Explorer can open XML files directly, and will display the contents in a tree view. To open an XML file in Internet Explorer, simply click on the file name. Alternatively, you can select the File menu, and then click on Open. In the Open dialog box, select the file you want to open, and then click on the Open button.

How to View an XML File in Internet Explorer

Assuming you have Internet Explorer installed on your computer, you can view an XML file simply by opening it in the browser. To do this, launch IE and then open the XML file you want to view by selecting “File > Open” from the menu. Alternatively, you can launch IE and then drag and drop the XML file into the browser window.

Once the XML file is open in IE, you’ll see the XML code displayed in the browser window. If the XML file contains any errors, IE will also display an error message. To see a more user-friendly version of the XML code, select “View > Internet Explorer Best View” from the menu. This will cause IE to display the XML code using colors and indentations to help make it more readable.
