Right click the page in Solution Explorer, click Open With... and select whatever editor as at the top of the list that has (With Encoding) next to it.

  • I tried the following: - Right click my usercontrol - Open with: "User Control with encoding" - Encoding "Auto-Detect" Still, it doesn't work. Any idea? Thx! Oct 11, 2011 at 7:55
