Hello all,

I have WinXP at work and have some I.E. shortcuts on my desktop to quick-launch to some websites. What ticks me off is rather than a new window opening up the shortcut takes over a I.E. window that's aready open! I rigth clicked on the shortcut icon to look for an option to "open NEW window" but didn't see anything like that in there. Anyone out there know of a way to do this?

Cheers,
Arfinwulf.

That one was harder than I thought...I found "open a new IE window and click the link/shortcut" :tazz:
See this.

Here's another little trick...Control n will launch a new window- then you can click the link with no fear that you will lose your first window. This is especially helpful when you have composed a masterpiece reply to a G2G topic and want to check a fact or a link before sending...

Just an addition:
You could get Firefox too. That has tabbed browsing, but if you want to keep IE and have tabbed browsing, you could get MSN toolbar.

Thanks for the update! I'm sure users with similar questions will be grateful!
Just to make sure, you did this, right?

Open Internet Explorer
Click Tools | Internet Options... | and click Advanced tab
Place or Remove the checkmark next to [Reuse Windows for Launching Shortcuts]
Click [Apply] [OK]
