Windows 7: New Window

New Window

I have tried to solve this issue from other sources such as googling and the IE 8 forum with no luck.

When I go to Page --> New Window

When New Window is clicked it opens the same website I am on.

Under tab browsing settings I have set it to open "Your first home page":

Name:  tabsetting.jpg
Views: 3

This has NOT corrected the issue. Is there another way to make this setting and have it work. It is a pain especially when it opens a page such as this site where I am logged in.

Thanks

You are telling it you want to play with your currently opened PAGE in a new window. Try opening a new tab first and then open that blank PAGE in a new window.

Thanks roncerr for the reply.

I guess I assumed that New Tab and New Window were the same thing; bad assumption.

I also kept looking for a New Tab icon on the Menus. It does not show but I did find it under the File Menu and it does exactly what I want.

Thanks again.

You can create a new tab by clicking to the right of the last tab opened.

Setting the window icon for a command prompt window
I have a set of scheduled tasks, all of which run programs written in Open Object REXX. Consequently, the Command Prompt windows where these tasks runs inherit their icons (at the top left of the window) from the rexx.exe program that handles my scripts. This means that all of these REXX tasks...
