Getting Started Learning HTML

Follow the steps below to set up your HTML file.

Setting Up Your HTML

  1. Create a folder on your desktop called HTML.
  2. With your text editor, save a file called webpage.html to the HTML folder.
    HINT: Be sure the file extension is .html
  3. In your file, Type "My First Web Page" and save again.
  4. Double click your file. It should, by default, open in a web browser. If not, select a web browser from the list of programs.

When viewing your page in the browser, you should see the content that you typed in step 3 above.

The HTML extension is what browsers use to render a web page. Some editors will add a default extension to your files, so be sure to always check that it ends in .html.
