    OK... my company is using SharePoint Team Services for some procedure review... they are storing their documents in sharepoint.

    the documents are typed in Word XP... Word XP has the option of where the target will open. I have chosen the target to open in a new window... but it's not working when the Word doc is encapsuled and opened in the browser window... They open the word document through SharePoint, so it opens in a browser window. when they click a link it opens the new document in the same browser... so if they want to see the previous document they have to go back. It would be nice to be able to have a way that the document opens in a new window, that way they can compare the two word docs.....

    does anyone know a way of changing the way the word doc opens hyperlinks when it is encapsuled in a browser window???

    Hi lora_3677, I know squat about the subject, I just noticed your cat picture ;) .

    That said, what happens when you click the link while holding down Shift?

    Rgds,

    Found nothing on MSKB or Advanced Goups (Google) that covers this. Found a webcast, "an STS overview", but the document libraries segment gave very little detail. Soz.

    Regrets,
    Andy
