Browser Question

Hi all,

(says he, head hung in shame and embarrasment 'cause he forgot).

What setting have I changed that has caused my browser to open all links in the same window? I want to be able to switch between sites and not use the Back button to find the site where I was. Make any sense.

Thanks
Andrew

If you are using IE6 (and maybe also earlier versions);

Go to Tools > Internet Options
Click the "Advanced" tab
Under the "Browsing" untick "Reuse windows for launching shortcuts"

Hope this helps.

It needs to be unchecked.
If this is what you meant let me know and I will see if I can think of anything else.

Hi Dan,

I need to hone up on my reading skills. Have unchecked it but still does not open in a new window.

Cheers
Andrew

Andrew.... you are correct, it does not appear to work.

When I want to open a link in a new window, I either right click and choose "Open Link in new window" or hold shift and click on the link which has the same effect.

Sorry I can not be of more help.

Hi,

I use a Mac so i don't know if this will help. Go to preferences, go to interface extras, select option Open a new browser window.
