Going from one site to another loosing the first site

Going from one site to another loosing the first site

Post by Peter » Sun, 01 Jul 2007 00:57:38


This drives many of our employee's nuts. They log on to a site, and then to
another, only to have the first one disappear. We use to be able to go to
tools|internet options|advanced|and taking off the check mark for windows
being able to reusing Windows for launching shortcuts. Now it doesn't work
anymore. There must be a way for the first site to not go away. It works on
my computer. Yes the site most likely is a https site, but it still does not
close my https site. Many thanks in advance for any help. We are using WIN
XP Pro, and some workstations have WIN 2000.

Go to Tools | Internet Options | Advanced.
Uncheck "Reuse windows for launching shortcuts".

Also, if you have Yahoo Companion, Google toolbar, MSN toolbar, a firewall,
EarthLink (or another pop-up blocker) My IE2 (a shell for IE) etc.
Yahoo Companion is a very common cause.

You'll have to turn off the feature that's blocking new windows or, perhaps,
uninstall the program (especially uninstall Yahoo Companion).

With some programs of this type, using Ctrl+click or Shift+click will allow
a new window.

If you're *sure* that another program isn't causing this, these links may
help.
