What is an HTA file?
You can run HTML applications in Windows by double-clicking HTA files. After you double-click an HTA file, Windows opens the application in Internet Explorer and runs the embedded code. When an HTA file is accessed on the Web, it typically produces a dialog box that says:
"What would you like to do with this file?"
☐ Run this program from its current location
☐ Save this program to disk
