IE Window being reused?!

  Terrylr 21:29 10 Nov 2004

Hi all,

I have a problem whereby if I already have an IE window open then go to open a new one (by double clicking on the icon) instead of it opening an additonal window it reuses the first!

This is not related to the Tools > Internet Options > Advanced > Resuse windows for shortcuts.

I'm not clicking on a shortcut! I'm opening a new window from the exe.

Using IE 6

Any advice would be GREATLY appreciated

Thanking you in advance

Terry, This of any help? click here.

Have you tried a 'tabbed' browser? You won't go back to IE. Here are a few popular ones with useful features not present in IE: Avant Browser click here, Firefox click here, Opera click here, Mozilla (Firefox's big brother) click here, Maxthon click here. G

go into your ie settings and tick the box that says "open in new window" and that should do the trick

Thank you for you help. That article on the KB is refering to opening a link in a new window. Not the problem I have unfortunately :(

Its the problem actually loading the application again - it never opens more that one IE window

Through google I found many references to this same problem. The only common factor was Yahoo! toolbar. Removal of the toolbar from add/remove programs and any other reference to Yahoo! toolbar then a reboot solved the problem.
