Specs: Windows 7
i'll try to make this as clear as i can ... i am using exploere 8 on windows 7 .
Something happened i dono what ... but i was able to open say 2 browser windows and when i clicked on my saved desktop URLS , they would open on the most recent explorer window i had opened ... so for example : i open a browser window and click on my links and they would open on that window ...then if i went and open anther browser ( a second one) and click on the link they would start opening on the second browser window . But NOW they only open on the first browser window ...and only the first ? the second browser i open seems to not be reconized .... how can i fix this ?

Download IE9 and see if that fixes it.

OH, shoot. I mis-read that. Sorry.

See this for hopefully the correct answer.

"Open IE and go to Tools\Internet Options and the Advanced tab. Scroll
down to the "Reuse windows for launching shortcuts" line under the
Browsing section. Uncheck that box, that will allow your desktop URL
shortcuts to open a new IE window. By default that box is checked."

I've only got IE9 here, but on the Inet Option sheet, General tab, do you have a Tab Settings button? If so, check the settings. If the settings are wrong, correct them.

If they are already correct, jog them by turning things off or changing them. Ok your way out, close the prog. Then reopen and set them how you want them.
