VBWTool Utility - Now with "Highlight" function
It's come to my attention that many of you may not be aware of the VB Forums Tag Editing Tools originally written by user G.Kumaraguru. It allows you to do a lot of really useful things involved with editing a post. Here is a picture of what you get when you right-click on highlighted text after installing the app.
Updated 05/09/2006The installation of the tool is now much simpler. All you need to do is to download the attached zip file, unpack the enclosed exe and run it. This exe will ask you for a place to store some htm files and then it will update your computer's Registry. We have tested this process but as a precaution you might want to back up the Registry before you install. To do that run Regedit and then do File|Export.
Once you have run the exe you should close and reopen IE and that's all you need to do!
Note that if you have previously installed any of the parts of this tool then you may wind up with one or two pairs of similar menu choices when you right-click. For example if you previously installed the Strip Tabs htm file and you gave it any other name besides "StripTabs" you may now have one item which says something like "Strip Tabs" and another which says "StripTabs" and you should probably remove the former from the Registry. You can tell which is the new menu item by looking at the path in the Registry. Finally, should you decide that you want to uninstall everything just go to Control Panel|Add or Remove Programs and remove VBForums VBWTool Utility.
Kleinma created the script for this new process and I'd like to thank him for his invaluable help.
