    Is this the appropriate forum?
    hi there,

    i have made a pages with an HTML editor. It is for recipes that i wrote. I am now interested to see if i can make the folder/files into an .exe program that will open when i double click it. Tis would make it easy to share with my family.

    Thanks for all views and posts.:)
    Regards,
    macan.

    Why not just share the HTML pages, if you create an index and put all the pages in a sub-folder, it'll do the same thing.

    You are of course right again johnwill. I was just planning on showing off. :)

    I was looking at trying to create an e-book originally. Most of the freeware programs i checked out were really not good or else i was no good at working with them. I will close this post on my next visit.I hold your comments in high regard johnwill so thanks again.(y)

    I will end this post on my next visit.

    Regards
    marcan

    You could put them in a self-extracting ZIP file. :D

    Self extracting zip file sounds good. I have Winzip if it would do the job?

    .chm i am not sure what that is.

    Can you enlighten me?

    Regards.
