Precursor: I am creating a website in Web Expressions 4 for a Computer Science class. I have never created a website with this program before. I currently have all of the different pages I desire (seven total pages) created for my website: one page is the initial/home page, and the other six are sub-pages that I have linked to the initial page with interactive buttons. Every file and every page has been saved to my webpage folder. I am able to open each of the pages in Expressions. I am able to preview my initial page in Internet Explorer.
Problem: While in preview mode, when I click on the interactive buttons on my initial page to take me to a different page in my website, Internet Explorer cannot open the page and delivers an "error" message. Have I saved my additional pages incorrectly (all are saved as HTML) or do I need to have each page opened in Expressions in order to be able to preview them in Internet Explorer?

If that doesn't fix it then you need to give us more information on your local site set up. You need to make sure you are working in a defined local site and that your links are document relative.

Please provide a link to the published site. We can guess all day long, or we can look at your actual source code and give you an answer immediately.
Cheryl, I'm not sure what setting "Preview" to use the development server for all pages would accomplish in this case. According to the OP "(all are saved as HTML)", the pages are not PHP or ASP.NET pages, so the dev server should not be needed for normal display. It is much more likely that she has not created the links for her interactive buttons correctly, which we could tell instantaneously if we could see her source code.
