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.

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
