Would you please let me know how I should configure my Internet Explorer so that

1. when I click on an URL or link, the new page doesn't replace the existing page but opens in a new window.

2. While the internet explorer is open on any particular page, if I minimise it and double click on the IE icon on the desktop, another seperate homepage opens.

Thanks

You can do this by right clicking on the link and selecting "Open in new Window".

2. While the internet explorer is open on any particular page, if I minimise it and double click on the IE icon on the desktop, another seperate homepage opens.


This should happen normally. I dragged the IE icon to the Quick Launch bar (near the start button) and just have to click it once to open a new instance of IE.

Hi, Thanks about the right click tip.
About the second thing, I dragged the IE icon to the quick launch toolbar but it didn't help. If I click on IE, the existing open page gets replaced by the iE home page. A new instance of IE doesn't open.
Do you think there's a setting that has to be done somewhere?
