Opening a new window

by grandpaw7 / February 24, 2004 2:16 AM PST

I have Windows 98 and IE6. When I have a website open and I want to open a second one without closing the first, I go File>New Window and then type in the URL for the second website. Is there a more efficient way of doing this? Thanks, Jerry

1. You can always use the key combination, Ctrl+N and then type URL.

2. If there is a hyperlink, button, etc., on the current page, you can always right click and select "Open Link in a New Window", but as you know it want be the page wanted without the new URL.

3. Copy the below ten lines (including blank lines which I've place at the left margin) into Notepad, or any other text editor. Save this file with a name similar to fav.reg, or any name wanted as long as the extension of .reg is preserved. Please note that using this procedure in and of itself will not in anyway corrupt the system registry.

Locate the file where saved. Right-click this file, select Merge from the resulting dialog, and confirm the process.

Note: Subsequently, when the right-click dialog is used on nearly every hyperlink, this option is displayed and when selected, the browser will open a link in a new browser window.

REGEDIT4

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\InternetShortcut\shell]
@=""
"flags "=hex:01,00,00,00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\InternetShortcut\shell\Link Opens in New Window]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\InternetShortcut\shell\Link Opens in New Window\command]
@="rundll32.exe shdocvw.dll,OpenURL %l"

CursorCowboy: something's not working

Hi, first of all, thanks CursorCowboy for your reply. I've been away from the computer for a while. I think I followed your instructions, but when I click on the newwindow.reg file (which got saved to My Documents) where I save the info I get a Registy Editor dialog asking if I want to add the info in "C\MYDOCU~1\NEWWIN~1.REG" to the registry. I click Yes and get a second Registry Editor dialog message the "Cannot import "C\MYDOCU~1\NEWWIN~1.REG". You can import only registry files."

What should I do now? Thanks. Jerry

Just in case, here is what I saved, which I think is what you directed me to save:

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\InternetShortcut\shell]
@=""
"flags"=hex:01,00,00,00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\InternetShortcut\shell\Link Opens in New Window]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\InternetShortcut\shell\Link Opens in New Window\command]
@="rundll32.exe shdocvw.dll,OpenURL %l"
