Windows 7: Displaying Two Windows of IE at the same time

Displaying Two Windows of IE at the same time

I have two shortcuts on my desktop each linking to a website. Until today i have been able to click on one, which displayed the web page in a window, and then click on the other shortcut and the other web page would be displayed in its own window. I could then arrange one window alongside the other and flip between the two.

Today, I must have inadvertently changed something because now, when I click the second shortcut, the webpage appears and displaces the first webpage. I can switch between the two using the task bar, but there is only the one window and this is not the behaviour I want.

I presume it is a Windows feature I have changed but I cannot see how.

Hi Richard.

Thanks for your reply. I'm sorry I didn't make myself clear. It' not the thumbnails on the taskbar that I want to show side by side, it is the windows on the desktop I want side by side.

Sorry my friend I will give you the correct answer this time
In IE8 select Tools, Internet Options. On the General tab click the
Settings button under Tabs. Under the section "Open links from other
programs near the bottom, set that to A new tab in the new page.
