how to have Ctrl-N open a home, not parent page

July 12, 2013 at 05:50:30
Specs: Windows 2008, intel xeon/16G
I googled this and ended here, but since it was not an answer, I would like to say I hate searching for answers in Google just to find silly conversations like "just open another browser". So, here is a reason why I would specifically not want those type "answers" and it would not work. If a Dr is in a portal with patient data and does Ctrl-N then I do not want him to have two windows of the portal open (the portal loses track of which patient is the active patient). I can not "block" new windows, because the Portal often opens new windows for viewing documents etc... So if that Doctor does a Ctrl-N then I specifically want it to open our home page, not another copy of the portal. Likewise, they are connecting via a remote session, and sure I would like for him to do all his browsing in his own browser, but if he needs something in our network... he will not have that from "another browser instance" from his desktop. So if anyone has a real answer to this question, I would love to hear it.

Search Firefox addon manager for Duplicate Tab. Duplicate Tab 1.3 might be what you want.

Thanks for the suggestion, but the application vendor has written dependencies that require Internet Explorer...

I thought it was a firefox addon? I don't know why it would require IE.

Can't get into all the details of that - why do vendors do the crazy proprietary things they do? .Net version this, Java version that, DHTML, MS unique style sheets, programers don't write for the masses, they write for what is on their machine sad to say and the rest of us have to try and make it all work together. Trust me - it needs IE and a specific version of IE - anything else is "unsupported" and it is tough enough to get support without giving them excuses.

There are two more besides that one. One is called Duplicate This Tab & the other is Clone Tab. Clone tab looks better. You said Google didn't produce results but it was Google that told me to search addons & extensions.

Guess I am not making myself clear enough - I need INTERNET EXPLORER from MICROSOFT to NOT open the same page when a user uses the shortcut key of CTRL-N We cannot use Firefox - The application flat out will not work in Firefox - Firefox and any Firefox addons & extensions are not an option. I need some way to hack IE so that it will open the home page not the current page when the user presses the CTRL-N key sequence. If you don't believe that pages act differently in different browsers just try going to http://www.keystonerv.com/ with Firefox and then go there with Internet Explorer as an example. I use Firefox at home every day and am well aware of addons & extensions, but have yet to find anything for INTERNET EXPLORER that gives me over-riding control of that key sequence. That is why I have a specific question for that key sequence for it to have a different behavior. Please stick to the question.

Look at Tab Enhancements & New Tab Page.

Also, IE has addons too. Search them as well.

Ctrl-N is not the same as Ctl-T -I can block tabs completely, that is a whole seperate thing. Ctrl-N = NEW Window Ctrl-T = new TAB Window. I want to control the New Window. Please do not post on something you don't understand.
