Reuse Windows for launching shortcuts

    When I click on a link in an Internet-aware program such as Outlook Express,
    I want to be able to open that link in a new browser window.

    I have unchecked the "Reuse Windows for launching shortcuts" box under
    Internet Options|Advanced|Browsing, but the link still reuses a currently
    open browser window.

    Perhaps an IE add-on is corrupting the behavior, if so how do I
    troubleshoot?

    Try pressing the Shift key while clicking.

    Sorry Roland, that doesn't work either - the link opens in a currently open
    browser window

    Change to Firefox and configure it to do what you want to do.

    It fails me very seldom. Sorry, can't think of anything else.

    Hi,
    Try disabling any pop-up blockers you have running. Yahoo companion can
    cause this. Other pop-up blockers can probably cause it. If running XP SP2,
    check Tools in the IE toolbar. If using the Google toolbar, try turning off
    the pop-up blocker.

    Thanks to all for your replies.

    What actually solved this was Mike's suggestion:-

    OLEXP: How to Configure OE to Open Links in E-mail Messages in a New Browser
    Window
    http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=256953 (I followed the section for
    Windows 2000, as there was no reference to XP)

    The problem was that in the Topic Box there was "system" instead of
    "WWW_OpenURL".

    Now when clicking on a link in OE, a new browser window opens.

    Thanks again.
