    IE 6.0.2900.2180

    Under My Computer/Folder Options/General/Browse Folders, I have the box checked to have "open each folder in its own window" but they do not. This just started happening today. I have shut down IE, restarted but windows still open and replace the previous window.

    The option you described is a Windows Explorer option. In spite of the similar names Windows Explorer and Internet Explorer are different beasts.

    If you double click on one of the icons in the My Computer window do you get a new window or the same one? I know that you said you get the same, but your reference to IE confused me.

    Terry I apprciate your reply. When I double click on one of the icons in the My Computer window I get a new window. But this is not what I ma referring to. I am referring to Internet Explorer. When I am browsing and I click on another link, or a link form my favoirites, it opens in the same window.

    Have you checked in IE options (probably in the Tools menu) to see if there is an option to open a link in a new window?
