Windows 7: Internet Explorer 8 Issue

09 Feb 2010   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium (64 bit)

It is possible though for you to program a short key (ex: contro, alt+E) to open up a new internet explorer through a shortcut on your desktop or start menu.

Heh yes, Ctrl+N has always opened a duplicate of the current browser session.

The feature of opening a new empty page browser or new home page browser would probably be useful but IE has never done it as far as I know (maybe it did in vita?). Maybe your thinking of FF or some other browser that largely tried copying IE then deviated where it seemed to make sense to (though can be confusing when going back and forth).

I wish Win+I would open IE like Win+E opens Explorer myself. That would be REALLY nice.

I do remember a program from a long time ago that does just that. Its called HotKeyBind. As for its compatibility with windows 7, its compatible with vista, so remember to run it in compatibility mode.
Download HotKeyBind from
Details about the program here:

I'm not sure why you want to change these shortcut keys but, I wouldn't mess with them myself....Remember to create system restore points.

Hi guys I made the decision to download IE10. To be honest I cannot make any distinguishable difference to IE9 in terms of speed. I don't like the fact that to switch to 64 bit browsing you need to change enabled protection something or other and reboot. Seems a pain. Anyway the main...
