    I just installed VS Community 2015.  When I click on an html element in my html page I do not see the properties.  Where is the setting to show properties of page elements or aspx controls?

    Have you tried pressing F4 when you have focus on an element or control?

    Hi,

    If there is something wrong with VS 2015 community version, how about repairing your VS, restart it again, and check whether it helps.

    Hello,

    Did a repair and restarted the PC and then VS 2015 and it still does not show properties of html elements.

    You can change the look and behavior of the elements on the page by setting values in the Properties window.

    By default, the Properties window is not enabled in Source view. You will notice an increase in display performance in Source view when properties are not displayed. You can change whether the Properties window is displayed by setting the appropriate option within Visual Studio.

    To enable the Properties windows

    1. On the Tools menu, click Options. The Options dialog box opens.

    2. In the left pane, double-click (or expand) the Text Editor node, expand the HTML node, and then click Miscellaneous.

    3. Select the Enable Property grid in Source view check box.

    Regards,

    There is no "Enable Property" in Miscellaneous.  All I have is "Format HTML on paste" and "Require '<' to trigger tag completion window".

    Also, there are 2 HTML options one just "HTML" and the other is "HTML (Web Forms)"  Only latter has Miscellaneous.  And, they show on aspx pages but not HTML pages.
