Windows 7: Why is Open Link in New Windows grayed-out

09 Nov 2013   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit SP1
Why is Open Link in New Windows grayed-out

When I opened IE with its Homepage preference option set to igHome - igHome Dash board appeared
When I clicked on the tab for Music & Theater the M&T page appeared
When I clicked on Add Custom Gadget (URL); entered "Introduction to Music Composition" and copied the URL for a webpage into the URL field, and clicked Save - a custom gadget appeared on M&T page

When I right click on my new gadget a menu appears with the option Open link in new window, but the option is grayed-out. How can it be that at other times this option has been available and when I selected it I worked.
