View Full Version : IE8 on XP - just one window with multiple tabs from external applications please

Is there a way to have only one IE8 window with multiple tabs like you can in other browsers?

When I click links in other applications I want IE8 to create a new tab in the existing IE8 window. I never want a second IE8 window to appear.
I thought the setting "Open links from other programs in:" set to "A new tab in the current window" might do the trick but it doesn't.

The operating system is Windows XP/SP3. Internal applications break in all other browsers so please just stick to suggesting fixes for IE8 only.

I've searched for a solution but it avoids me. Perhaps there isn't one.

Middle clink the links with your mouse wheel or right click and chose open in a new tab - that should do it.
