    Open E-mail Links in New IE Window

    Posted on by Daniel Petri in Windows Client OS

    When I click on a URL in an e-mail message, the Web page opens up in whatever IE window I was most recently using. Can I make it open in a new IE window?

    “When I click on a URL in an e-mail message, the Web page opens up in whatever IE window I was most recently using. This is annoying, because it takes me away from a page that I may not be ready to leave. Can I stop this behavior and make the URL link open in a new IE window?”

    Yes you can. In Internet Explorer 6 and above an option exists to help you eliminate this annoying problem.

    1. Open an Internet Explorer window.
    2. Go to Tools, Internet Options > Advanced.
    3. Uncheck the Reuse windows for launching shortcuts option.

    Done!
