Hi all,

So I noticed my IE8 is not opening links in a new tab (in the same window). It opens it in a new window each time. I have all my TAB settings as follows:

Enable tabbed browsing: CHECKED
warn me when closing multiple tabs: unchecked
always switch to new tabs when created: unchecked
enable quick tabs: CHECKED
open only the first homepage when IE starts: unchecked
enable tab groups: CHECKED

when a new tab is opened, open: THE NEW TAB PAGE

when a pop-up is encountered: ALWAYS OPEN POP-UPS IN A NEW WINDOW

open links from other programs in: A NEW TAB IN THE CURRENT WINDOW


Is anyone else experiencing this problem or know a solution for it? I appreciate any help, thank you in advance---

Go to internet options : select the settings under the tab category :

select the option : open links from other programs in " The current tab or window"
push ok and then open the new browser window and then click on any of the links
See what happens
Then go back to internet options and then select the other option as " A new tab in the current window
Then push ok and reopen a new browser window and see whether the links opens in a new tab or not.

Alternatively, you can try to reregister the internet files by

Did everything suggested, it still opens in new windows. Same thing happens to me on another computer that is not networked to this one. Ugh. It's so annoying that I've gone to Firefox as my default browser! But I'd still like IE to work as it should. Any other ideas?

At last I have discovered where the crime has been committed. This fixes the problem. Its a corrupt user account.

Secondary problem, view your devices in control panel – nothing showing

Recreate a new user, permission level as required and login bingo, not only does the IE8 now open new windows etc but the devices have come back. Think its time to remove the UAC again.

Hope this helps. Microsooft could not fix it
