To open a web page in a new window Hold down Shift while clicking the link with your mouse. (MS IE only.) This is very useful when you are on a page you don't want to lose track of or leave completely, but you want to check another page. The new page will open, with your original page behind it. You can go back to the original page by just closing the new page with the x at the top right of your screen. Or, you can open the original page from its button found on your bottom task bar.
