  • File ending doesn't matter here. They are both fine.
    Which version of Windows are you using?

  • I'use Windows 7 64bit


  • Could you try to do the same in Chrome?

  • I have not Chrome installed, I can try to install it and see what happens


  • I downloades Chrome ed installed it, then restarted the PC tried to open a .mht file (right click and select Chrome)

    but the file didn't open, only appears a list of directories


  • I noticed on my system, with Opera 27 (latest version), if I try to open a .mhtml or .html and the name of the file starts with a # then I get a list of directories. If the # is any where else in the name, no matter if it's .mhtml or .html it will not open at all. The error is "This web page not found", I know it's a long shot but try renaming one of the files and see what happens. I also have 12.16 installed all files open normally in that one.

  • Thanks for checking, @kagliostro. It's a Chromium issue then. Could be this one. Did you save those mhtml files on a Linux / Mac by chance?
    This one sounds like your issue, too.

  • Did you save those mhtml files on a Linux / Mac by chance?

    Not sure if it's still the case with IE, but IE used to have problems with mhtml files with *nix/mac line endings. I think Outlook Express had the same problem with eml files (which are pretty close to mhtml files). Either way though, if an mhtml file doesn't use the windows newline format, the file should be fixed. Of course, I'm not saying Chromium shouldn't handle non-windows newline formats as a form of error handling.

  • I use windows XP SP3 and Opera 27, but i don't see any problem open with Opera or IE

  • db84x I've no problem opening files saved as .mhtml (saved using Opera 27), the problem is when I try to open old .mht

    files saved with old versions of Opera (Opera 12) using Opera 27 to try to open it

    As a try I downloaded Firefox and try to open an old .mht file, Firefox is not able to open the file and ask what he can

    do, like olen it with Opera (as predefined),if you confirm to use the predefined Opera, the file is open in Opera 12

    (remember that I've both Opera 12 and 27 installed)
