Windows 7: Multiple tabs in ie9, without clicking the tab button?

Multiple tabs in ie9, without clicking the tab button?

I'm a Maxthon user, but as ie9's Trident also drives Maxthon (thus necessitating my having ie9), I figured I'll fool around with it. My biggest problem is that I just can't get multiple tabs to show without clicking the New Tab button...and I have manipulated the Tab Settings in Tools every which way from Sunday without success. What i would like to happen (as it does in Maxthon), is to click a link on an open page and then have that page replaced by the new page and to have a its tab open next to the already open tab. Personally, I think that it is rediculous to have to click an Open New Tab button in order to have a new link's tab open next to an already opened tab...

Hi,

You can try clicking the mouse wheel (middle button) which should open up a new tab for the clicked link.

You can just right click a link then on the context menu you'll see "Open in new tab" and that will open the link in another tab besides the one already opened. As simple as that on IE9, mate.

Right click on the link you want to open and choose "Open link in new tab"






Clicking on the mouse wheel while over the link will also open a new tab.

Regards and tight lines!

Thanks for your suggestions, but I don't think I made my request clear enough as all your responses indicate that in order to open another tab, one has to do multiple clicking. Let me try to make my question a little clearer.

Let's say I already have a page opened and there is its corresponding tab in the tabs row. I then click a link within the already opened page. I want the link's new page to replace the presently opened page and then I want within the tabs row to have the original tab and the new tab. To do this all I want to have to select is the link (as I do in maxthon) in the first opened page. I do not want to have to right click, left click, click the Open Tab button, or anything else other than click the link in order to open another tab.

You can't do that. If you left-click on a link it will be opened in the current tab. If you want a new tab for the link then you have to either click the middle button (wheel) while the mouse is over the link, OR right click and use the context menu. This will open the link in a new tab and retain the old one.

You don't need to click on any tabs at all, only on the hyperlinks ( URL's) you want to open.

If you right click on a tab, you get a different context menu;

Thanks for the try, Hopalong X. New links still open in the same tab as the link resided in...I don't get a separate new tab.

Unfortunately, Mike C appears to be right in that what I want IE9 to do, it can't do...at least for me. That is, I have a Logitech cordless trackman with very programable buttons but can't use the middle button to opnen a new tab. I have the middle button programmed for Enter and since I use Maxthon way more than IE, it wouldn't pay to free-up the mouse's middle button to use IE.

Now I think I'm getting you.

I'm using sevenforums Aero wide. At the top of this page right are New Posts, User CP, Vista etc.
The internal links all open in this window not a new tab.
The Vista being an outside link opens the Vista forum in a new tab as per my Tab settings.

I have to right click and choose open in new tab if I want the internal links to open a new tab.
Opening all of them in a new tab with a single click that would be nice I totally agree.
Sorry I was a bit slow on understanding what you want.
