Windows 7: Microsoft Powertoys for XP: What about for Windows 7?

Microsoft Powertoys for XP: What about for Windows 7?

Does any such thing exist (I'm guessing no since searching this forum turned up 0 hits) ?

One PowerToy was called TweakUI, and it had some handy customization features. The one I'm after allows an MSIE user to specify which editor to use when selecting "View Source" on a webpage. I've grown used to using Wordpad for this, and I actually prefer it to the html editor that's the default in Seven.

If anyone has any suggestions, I'd appreciate it. Thanks ahead of time . . .

Not a win 7 function but rather a SevenForum setting.

There is no Win 7 setting or "tweak" which will change the way that SevenForums software works.

Browse to wordpad.exe and make it default.

I think the problems lies in my having referred to Windows 7 as "Seven" -- admittedly, a bit lame on my part . . .

And does that then enable me to use WordPad when posting in SevenForums?

Karl, he wanted to change the default choice for view source for any webpage, not necessarily 7F
