Creating and editing pages

In Microsoft Expression Web, you have several options for creating web pages. After you create a page, you can set the properties of the page.

It's important to always use Expression Web when renaming files and folders so that hyperlinks to or from the renamed file (or files in the renamed folder) are automatically updated. If you rename a file or folder by using Microsoft Windows Explorer, hyperlinks to and from that file (or files in that folder) are not updated.
