Windows 7: Open new website in same window

Open new website in same window

Is there any way to make a new website open in a new tab in the IE8 window that's already open, and not open a whole new window? Just gets a bit irritating clicking several links and a bunch of IE windows open up.

Internet Explorer - Tabbed Browsing - Vista Forums

Hope this helps,
