I already have Dreamweaver...

... what I was looking for was a program I could use that was ideal for viewing a variety of code including HTML, PHP, etc.

I'm trying to get a grasp on how a server based data base works. A friend of mine wants a data base oriented web page built for a group of people. It is totally new territory for me but I know from past experience if I spend a few hours actually looking at the code I can begin to understand it. I go in to a saved file... cut and paste, add or delete the code... save it and open it up in a browser to see if my changes worked or not.

I've used mi 2 in the past and wondered if there was a better program out there (not looking to spend money since I'm really, really poor right now).

Google finds them.
I only have knowledge of BBEdit and only then from someone elses experiences.
They liked it, a lot!

Mi 2 does fine except for reading php... BBEdit offers a trial download which I have since taken advantage of. Now if the code just starts making sense!

Now of any sites out there that tell you how to set up an online data base style website?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
