I had to disable all tab browsing for a client in their IE 8. I then showed the client how to bring up a new window with ctrl+n to provide them a quicker way than clicking for a new window.
Two days later, client comes back and says Ctrl+n doesn't open a new window anymore. It is a desktop running wins 7 pro. I try the ctrl+n (left ctrl key first) and nothing happens. I try ctrl+n (right key next) and nothing happens. Ctrl+C, +V and others work fine.
So it is not hardware.
I reopened IE same problem. I was told to check if single view or other settings were enabled in IE but the only settings I find are under the Tab settings which when I disabled tabs in IE 8 these options are greyed out.
Of course, the client can click to open a new window, but I am puzzled as to what happened.
Anyone else run into this?
