    Hi,
    Is it possible to prevent IE windows to jump on top, when the page download is complete?

    I often launch a new links in separate windows while reading the first one. But when the web page on the new window is completed, it pop up at my face, that's very irritating.

    THIS IS NOT A POP UP QUESTION, I talk about regular web pages.

    Is it possible to prevent that?

    Try this> Start\Settings\Control Panel\Folder Options\General\Browse Folders\check the box that says 'open each folder in it's own window'. ;)

    If you have a shortcut to IE on your taskbar (usually down near the start button) Right Click it and select properties then make sure you have the shortcut tab selected and where it says "run" set it to minimized and click apply/ok

    I have no IE shortcut on the taskbar. I have one on the desktop but it's not a regular shortcut: it opens directly the "internet option" if I clic on "porperties".
    Maybe I will create a normal shortcut and do what you say.
    Thanks.

    Yep ! Just drag it down onto your quick launch bar and then right click it from there .
