How to open MHT files not in Internet Explorer

Internet Explorer seems to be the only current way to open these files and has worked to do so for some time. Microsoft is ending support for IE and it isn't even in Windows 11.


In doing some testing in Windows 11 I can find no way to open these files.


Is anyone aware of another application or browser that currently supports opening these files?  

For Smartbear,  Are there future plans for support of a single file export option like the MHT files that is more broadly supported?


Response of use a different file export is not what I am looking for unless there is an equivalent format I am missing.

    As for your initial question, IE is the only way to open it, indeed.
    Please also take a look at this article -
    However, it won't allow you to export as a single file still. The best way to proceed is to archive the html log.

      Have you tried any of these? If so which ones actually work.  Every viewer I have tried does not actually work. Most haven't been updated in years.
