Hey guys. Ok, I have a small annoying problem. Whenever I open multiple browser windows, it also adds extra instances of iexplore.exe to the task manager. So, if I have internet explorer open in 3 windows, that means I will have 3 instances of iexplore open in the task manager. This never used to happen. Does anyone know how to stop it from doing this? Thank you for your help.

*I have IE 7.0*

It's supposed to do that.

You were probably opening tabs before, now you're opening new Windows.

To open a new tab, press CTRL+T in Internet Explorer.

Thanks for the reply. I have never used tabbed browsing. And, if it is supposed to open multiple instances in task manager, why wasn't it doing it before?

It's always opened multiple instances of IE7 on my system ever since the early betas.
