|Hello, I am having a problem getting my desktop shortcuts to internet explorer, at work, to open in a new window. They re use the current window. Now before you say anything, i already know the two ways to fix this: |
[Start] [Run] [Regedit]
Registry Key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main
Modify/Create the Value Data Type(s) and Value Name(s) as detailed below.
Data Type: DWORD Value // Value Name: AllowWindowReuse
Setting for Value Data: [0 = Do Not Reuse Window / 1 = Reuse Window]
Exit Registry and Reboot
To avoid editing the registry, the same results may be obtained by using the procedure detailed below.
Open Internet Explorer
Click Tools | Internet Options... | and click Advanced tab
Place or Remove the checkmark next to [Reuse Windows for Launching Shortcuts]
Click [Apply] [OK]
However, being that i am at work, i am blocked from Regedit and also from the advanced tab in internet explorer (large corporate network). Is there a line i can add to the target in the shortcut that will force it to open in a new window? Thanks, Matt.
