Opening multible browsers...

Discussion in 'Tech Talk' started by PDogSniper, Dec 30, 2005.

  1. I'm running XP and IE. I use to be able to open several IE's at once, go to two diffenet web sites at the same time. Example, I would open two IE's and with one I could to GT and the other I would go to Imagestation. I could easily copy links from IS to GT. For some reason or other I can't do that anymore...

    Another example is that if someone on GT posts a link and I click on it, instead of opening a second window for that link, it closes the GT window and opens a new window for the link...

    What gives here. I know it's not a GT issue but something in my settings. This is really frustrating as I then have to backtrack and re-open the original window....

  4. I've seen that problem before but I don't remember exactly what caused it.Try running Disk Clean up and check all of the boxes.

    Within IE, try Tools > Internet Options > Advanced. Make sure the "Reuse windows for launching shortcuts" checkbox is unchecked.

    Buncha Mozilla snobs... ;)

    Hold down 'Shift' key while clicking on the link you want to open up in a new window =)

    Give Mozilla Firefox a test run for a week or so, I tink you'll like it.

    Once you have installed it, open it and goto tools/options/general. In Location(s) type: www.imagestation.com | www.glocktalk.com

    |=shift+\

    This will open both sites in tabs.

    Play with it for a while, you'll never go back to IE but for updates.
