  1. Open link as new window in Edge


    In IE, there was a setting to open links (e.g., ones selected by shift-clicking, or ones with a target attribute in the anchor tag) into a new window instead of a new tab. I can't find a way to do this in Edge - in general, the number of user-adjustable settings seems to be MUCH smaller in Edge. Is there a way?

  2. How can I get every link to open in a new window

    I had one last setting on Always open pop-ups in new tab instead of Always open pop-ups in new window selected... once I changed that, all my links now open in new windows, as I prefer.

    Thank you for trying to help!

  3. How can I get every link to open in a new window

    Hi,

    press the Control key (ctrl) while you click on a link in a search page results page or any other web page. Web site programmers decide how links on their sites open tabs/windows on web browsers. All web browsers allow the ctrl+click shortcut to open the
    link address in a new tab/window.

    Links on web pages can also be 'scripted' .... that is they tell the browser what size to make the opened tab/window... IE has Security restrictions and a built-in popup blocker that can change the outcome of scripted links.

    1. Please include links to any web pages that you are having problems with your questions.

    2. Ensure that you are using the default IE security zone settings.... Internet Options>Security tab, click "Reset all zones to default"

    3. Tools>Popup blocker settings... to adjust your IE built-in popup blocker settings.

    Some Addons, like the Google toolbar have their own popup blocker, which can affect how links on some web pages open.... you don't need 2. To avoid confusion turn off any third-party popup blocker or better still uninstall any third-party addons in your
    browsers.

    Regards.

    The easiest and quickest way, (for mouse), is to wheel-click the link or bookmark to open in a new tab then just drag the tab and drop in the middle of nowhere.

    Edge is still full of glitches though. One thing I found is if you close the 'parent' window, all other windows will close as well!

  7. Thanks for the replies. So if I understand correctly, there is no way to just tell Edge to open them to new windows as a default? I can do the other methods, but they all involve some more work - trivial, yes, but I do it a lot, so I would like it to happen automatically.
