    How do I open multiple windows


    Hi
    Sometimes I like to have two web pages open at the same time. With windows 8 all I had to do was right click on the IE icon and the option to open another window was there, but that option isn't there in Windows 10.

    Any help much appreciated

    :)

    Many ways. But it depends on which browser you're using. If you are using edge, just click the 3 dots in the upper right corner, and choose "New Window". Or, you can right click on a link and choose "Open in new window".
