I am using gmail's web client and when I get an email with a link it opens a new browser window. Is there any way to make it open a new tab in the already open window?

Sure, hold the CTRL key when you click on the email. This should open it in a new tab.

I hope this helps...

By golly I think that was what I was looking for. Before when I would hit it, it would open a new window that would not size properly, just bugged me more than anything!

Good morning!

I am glad that that helped you! You can also fix the browser opening in a “smaller” window too. If your email does it then so will other sites that send the “open in new window” command when you click on link.

Internet Explorer is designed to “remember” its last window size. So, even if you get a pop-up that counts as an Explorer window and when you close it, that’s the size your next window will be.

If you want to fix the size of your second window you can do the following:

Open Internet Explorer
Right click a link on your homepage
Select “open in new window”
In the new window
HOLD your CTRL key
Drag all the sides of the Explorer window to full size
Let go of the CTRL key
Switch to your main page, leaving the second window open
HOLD your CTRL key
Select FILE
Select CLOSE
Now in your second window
HOLD your CTRL key
Select FILE
Select CLOSE

Now test it to see if your second window opens in FULL SCREEN.

Open your I.E. 7
Right click on a link in our home page
Select open in new window

It should now cover your whole screen.

There may be another way to fix this, but this is the method that I use.

Thanks…

Shane
