I believe you want a link to open in a new window. There's a setting to do that permanently, but For the life of me I can't remember it at the moment. You can right-click on the link and choose open in new window, or hold the shift key and click on the link. I'm sure someone else will post a permanent solution if I don't get back
Which browser are you using?

If i understand your question properly, what you are trying to do is force any new links to open in a new window, so that your original window with your home page does not switch to the link that you just clicked. I would check into the Internet Options applet.

You can reach it from the Control Panel or from within Internet Explorer.

I'm currently running Internet Explorer 7.0, which utilizes the tabbed browser functionality. Not sure which version of Internet Explorer you are using but if it is not IE 7.0, then the tabbed browsing feature is a moot point for you.

At any rate, to get to the Internet Options applet, depending on your Start Menu settings, you can do one of the following:

Start >> Control Panel >> Internet Options


Start >> All Programs >> Internet Explorer


Start >> Internet Explorer >> Tools (Alt + T or Point and click Tools) >> Internet Options

That will bring up the Internet Options applet. From there, you want to look for the setting that will indicate something to the effect of "Open links from other programs in:" there should be a check box or radio button so that you can select to open new links in a "new window".
Check into it and see if that doesn't reach the desired end.
