    I have Windows XP and IE 6.0. In My Computer under Tools / Folder Options, I have the radio box checked for "Open each folder in its own window". I am not able to open more than one window while browsing. On occasion, while in a browser window, in clicking on a link it sometimes opens in another window.

    Hi genesis211

    Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

    That option is used when you open Folders on your computer.

    Try this:
    Control Panel > Internet Options > Advanced tab
    Under Browsing scroll down and uncheck: Reuse windows for launching shortcuts
    Apply, OK to save and close.

    Let us know if that works for you or not.
