there is no 'open with' when i right click and then if i go into file at the top bar there is only , open file, open folder, open recent. and i cant see anything called 'edit applications' in the edit toolbar either.

ahh I think I know what the issue is.Do you have a list of files on the left side of sublime?

Sorry I have been using sublime on my mac recently and most of this stuff works out of the box. I am working through a solution on windows give me a few minutes.

OK if you don't have the package installer installed(if you press control + alt + p, type in install, and nothing is listed) then you will need to install that first.

https://packagecontrol.io/installation

you should be able to do the simple install. You might have to restart sublime after the install is done.

next you will need to pres control + alt + p and type install, click on Package Control: Install Package

next type in View in Browser and choose that option. It should show up before you are finished typing it out. That will install the plugin. you might have to restart sublime. Once this is done you should be able to right click on the page and click view in browser. There might be some additional setup that needs to be done, but this is outlined on the github page below. I mention this because you are asking about a php page and that will probably need a little setup but take a look at the configure to view on local server section. This link will take you directly there.

Please let me know once you get this working or if you have any other issues.

thank you so so much for all your help. just having one slight problem. i am currently in china so i have to use a proxy. i have to do the manual install. of the package control. i have gotten this far
Click the Preferences > Browse Packages… menu Browse up a folder and then into the Installed Packages/ folder

Download Package Control.sublime-package and copy it into the Installed Packages/ directory

( i couldnt seem to open the file) tried opening it in note pad and pasted it into the view> console> received an error msg.

you don't need to open the file, just make sure it is in the installed packages folder and restart sublime. After you restart you should be able to press control + alt + p and type in install and it should find the package installer. I installed it the same way.

im really sorry but im a little lost. if i go Click the Preferences > Browse Packages… menu Browse up a folder and then into the Installed Packages/ folder i already see a file called Package Control.sublime-package

when i close sublime and reopen it and press ctrl+Alt+P a little box comes up. but if i type install nothing comes up.

or am i missing a special way to restart sublime?

Try ending sublime from the windows task manager. What version of windows are you running?

im running windows 7 64bit. maybe i should reinstall sublime and see if that works.

I would restart your computer before you consider reinstall Sublime. Reinstall seems a bit drastic.
