    hmm... is it possible to open a link in a new windows?
    for example, a link in favorites. it is very annoying to open a new windows then only go to favorites.
    if i click the link in current ie, it will load on that ie instead new window! :mad:

    ok, here's a reg file written by j79;

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]
    "AllowWindowReuse"=dword:00000000

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\InternetShortcut\shell\Open In New Window\command]
    @="rundll32.exe shdocvw.dll,OpenURL %1

    Thanks for the recognition Dealer, the:
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]
    "AllowWindowReuse"=dword:00000000
    does the uncheck 'reuse windows' stuff for you.
