Windows 7: Need interpretive hyperlink preferably in cell within Excel

Need interpretive hyperlink preferably in cell within Excel

Hello, hoping somone can help me.

I am using a hyperlink for a website and have placed it within a cell in my Excel sheet and it re-opens the website in a new window every time I click on it. Preferably, I would like it to open a new window only if the website is not already open. Is there any way to fix the link where somthing will realize that the website is already open and just take me straight to the already open website or open a new window when it's not already open? Somtimes I have 20 to 30 different websites open at once and I use them all to gather information to put into one spreadsheet, so if I could quickly access each website directly from the spreadsheet it would be much more efficient.

If there isn't a way I can utilize a hyperlink in the above stated fashion within Excel, is there any way I can alter the shortcut on my desktop so that it will realize the when the website is already open and that I just want to go to it and not open a new window? Any assistance is apprecieate. Thanks.
