If you have IIS installed you can view the asp files by typing the url of your local file space

Say you have you win installed in C drive and have the wwwroot folder at
C:\Inetpub\wwwroot

Then if you put your asp files in folder say temp then the source code files are at location
C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\temp and so you need to use the following URL in browser to see the ASP code
http://localhost/temp/default.asp
OR
http://127.0.0.1/temp/default.asp

Assuming default.asp is the file you want to see it in web browser.

You can have as many folders as you wish and the url is something like
http://localhost/ should be replaced by C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\
and all \ by /

Thanks and I hope this clears your queries.
If you have any further queries just drop in here a new thread.

Yes you should edit the files in folder
C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\temp and refresh the web browser to see the changes.
