A Web Talk’s reader, Terry Blount, submitted a couple of days ago an interesting trick for those people using Internet Explorer. Here is his brief email on how to prevent a desktop shortcut to a website from overwriting an open website in Internet Explorer. If you have some good trick and tip, you can submit it to Web Talk here. I will publish them!
Here is a tip I am loving:
If you have desktop shortcuts to a web page and you have IE open, when you click on the shortcut it will OVERWRITE the web page you have opened. To set Internet Explorer to open a NEW instance of IE in a NEW window do this:
- Open Internet Options from Control Panel or from the Tools menu inside IE.
- Click on the Advanced tab.
- Look under Browsing.
- Uncheck the setting to reuse the window or tab, or open a new window.
Note: You have to turn off tabs feature.
