Open multiple webpages in new tabs.

Specs: Windows Vista
Is it possible to open a new iexplorer window with Yahoo. Then in that same window open a couple more new tab with Google, MSN. The script below opens in seperate IE windows.
Example
@echo off
START iexplore "HTTP://www.google.com"
START iexplore "HTTP://www.yahoo.com"
START iexplore "HTTP://www.MSN.com"
The script below opens in the same IE windows with new tabs.
@echo off
START "Google" "HTTP://www.google.com"
START "Yahoo" "HTTP://www.yahoo.com"
START "MSN" "HTTP://www.MSN.com"
But the issue I run into is when I have IE open already. And I run the second script it opens the link in new tabs in that window that was already open. I would like to have it open in its own new window then the other link open in new tabs in the new window. If that makes sense.

I'm not so sure about "START "Google" "HTTP://www.google.com"", "Google" isn't a program that the start command will recognize. But, if it works...

Based on what you've posted, try this.

@echo off
START iexplore "HTTP://www.google.com"
START "Yahoo" "HTTP://www.yahoo.com"
START "MSN" "HTTP://www.MSN.com"

Can I put a question here?

It opens a new window for google. But yahoo and msn open up in a previous open IE window as new tabs. I like to get all three website to open up in the same window. While I have other IE windows open.

I tought Internet Explorer does not have the capability to open websites in the same windows (tab).

But FireFox can:

start firefox.exe "www.google.com" "www.yahoo.com" "www.msn.com"

Happy is ONE who says I am an OttoMAN.
