Microsoft FrontPage - Making Hyperlinks Work Again In Preview Mode (FrontPage 2002)


Upgrading Internet Explorer can cause certain internal hyperlinks not to work in FrontPage's Preview mode. Fortunately, the fix is pretty easy, although it does require you to use the Windows Registry Editor.


  • Click the Windows Start button
  • Choose Run from the Start menu, type regedit in the Open text box, and then Click OK
  • When the Registry Editor window opens, locate the following registry key:
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Application Compatibility
  • Next, right-click on Application Compatibility and choose New | DWORD Value
  • A new entry appears in the right pane; rename it Frontpg.exe and press [Enter]
  • Double-click on this entry to access the Edit DWORD Value dialog box
  • Type 1 in the Value Data text box and click OK
  • Close the Registry Editor. (Your change is saved automatically.) The next time you launch FrontPage, your hyperlinks will work as expected
