I've been trying to find the setting in WinXP Pro/IE6 that when I click on a link it opens a new window instead of using the same one. I looked in Internet Options>Advanced and unchecked "reuse window for launching shortcuts" but that didn't help. Any ideas?

Okay thanks, that'll work for now.
I thought there was a setting to open everything in a new window. :D

depends how the link is set up on the web page. the web designer can either allow opening in new page, force opening in new page or force to open in same page and you can't overide them with your settings

I *think* this is the setting you meant - it seemed to work when I tried it.

Open IE and click on tools, then Internet Options. Click on the "advanced" tab. UNcheck the box next to "reuse windows for launching shortcuts." Click apply then close.

Good luck.

Thanks for the info guys.
IE6 certainly seems to have its limits after
experimenting with tabbed browsers.
