I've been looking for a way to open links on the bookmark toolbar in a new tab by default. I know the right click > open in new tab but I just want to open it with the one click. Have not been successful thus far. Anyone know?

3 button mouse

If you have a 3 button mouse, click the scroll wheel and it should open in a new tab. I know this works for sure with my mouse, and I've tried it on a few others, but I'm not 100% sure if that's something that's default on all mice or not.

Worth a shot!

I've had a 3 button(scroll wheel) mouse the whole time I've had my computer. Never even thought about trying it! It worked. Thanks a heap.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
