Hello, 

 

I've been troubleshooting a laptop that opens all links in new tabs for a while now. I've done as much research as I can, and I can't find what will fix this issue. 

 

This is what I've done....

 

Verified that in the tab settings in IE are set the same as a machine that's working fine. Restored Advanced Settings, same issue. Reset Internet Explorer Settings, same issue. Uninstalled IE 11 and re-installed it, same issue. Restore settings back to default in Chrome, same issue. And the same thing is happening is Safari.  :axe: 

This is a Windows 7 machine. 

 

Any suggestions? 

 

Thanks!

hmmmm.....wonder if this could be a mouse issue....

 

If you have a mouse laying around that you could test with....try this...shut down the computer, then plug in the mouse

and restart the comp. Allow Windows to find the external mouse and install the proper driver for it.

 

It might be worth it to check in the Device Manager and see if there are any errors mentioned.

Is the computer a desktop or laptop? Maybe a stuck key....I'm really just giving you a bump and hoping someone

else might have some clue what is going on.

 

There is a program that runs a lot of fixes that may be useful if you want to give it a try.
