Windows 7: Opening links in entirely new tabs

18 Apr 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit (6.1, Build 7600)
Opening links in entirely new tabs

I would like to set my browser up to where when I click on a link, it will automatically open it up in a new tab without removing the original tab. I have gone to Tools-->Internet Options-->Tabs, Settings, and seem to have the correct settings set, but it still opens new link in my current tab as opposed to in a new one. Any ideas about this?

Hello Matt,

Double check to see if your settings look like below. It's how I have mine set for this.
