Hard to explain -IE keeps opening a new window

I have been doing stock market research for years and years.

Use the same brokerage account as my starting point -

It use to be - when I clicked on an item -

Say IBM overview page - it would open a new window - so I had 2 open at the same time - my general account page and the IBM overview page -

If I wanted to look at their earnings history - I click on the tab for "EARNINGS HISTORY" (on the IBM overview page) --

It would go to the earnings history page - but NOT open a new window in IE. The IBM overview page just became the earnings history page.

Now every item I click on opens a new IE window - so after an hour or so of research I have 50 separate IE windows open.

If I try and update IE - it tells me I have the latest version -

Any way to control when a new IE window is opened or not?

It is getting to be a PITA closing all of these windows.

Try some of these ideas. It's dated, but might get you in the ballpark.

Registry change

I tried this once and after a couple days of pure hell I bought a new computer.

Web pages themselves can specify that a link should open in a new window, which is probably what is going on.

There are options in IE under "Tabs" "Settings" button (in IE 8, not sure about 9). You could set the pop-up setting to "Always open pop-ups in a new tab".

That would at least keep the new page in the same browser window.

A second method: To open that page or site in the foreground (with Internet Explorer switching to the new tab you opened, without closing the previous tab), hold down simultaneously the Ctrl key and Shift key, and then click on the link.

I think this solved my problem.

I was having a mental block - only adjusting the items under the heading "open links from other programs"-- thinking pop ups were just those ads that pop up - I was not thinking that sometimes the item you click on is itself a pop up.

It is possible there is something else going wrong with my PC - when I tried to reboot and open IE a few days ago - it went NUTS and opened 75 individual IE windows. It was freaking strange to see that many IE windows open up like a machine gun.
