Topic tags/keywords: question

New to this forum, though I have cruised many others over the years. Why do links provided by posters open in the same window? I end up hitting my backup key a bunch of times to get to the original post. Am I missing something?

thanks!

I don’t know why but that’s how the owners of the site programmed it. If you press control while you click on a link, it will usually open up in a new tab (depending on the browser you’re using).

I got tired of that also. Then I tried “Right Click”, then the PopUp Menu shows “Open Link In New Window”. Click on that and it does Open in a New Window. When you’re done, close that Window and your back at the “Link” Page.

I do the same thing if I’m going from a Member Posted, Forum Topic. THINK that one says “Open In New Window”

Takes all freakin’ day if you have to keep hitting the back Button or Arrow.

Hope it works for you!!

With Firefox, I click on the link with the middle mouse button to open it in a new tab.

Brandon:

Thank you Sir!! I tried your suggestion (Control, click on Link) it does open in a new window. I’m using IE 8 with Windows 7 Home Premium.

Here’s one for you guys I just got today. ANY Conversion...Simply type into Google exactly what you want ZAP! It’s there i.e. “54 Pounds In Kilograms” (No Quotations) Done!

Also 2 ways of Zooming a Page Up or Down .... 1- Hold down Control (Ctrl) same time use your Mouse Wheel to go Up or Down (In or Out) ..... 2- Hold Control and hit + Key or – Key on Numbers Section (Pad). Careful with that one, it works REAL QUICK!! Takes you DOWN to 10% or UP to 1,000% !!!

With Opera, I just Right Click & Hold while moving the mouse to the Left a tad… and it’s the same as “Back”.
... much faster & easier… (If I move to the Right, it’s equal to a “Forward”)

This morning, I did that and it worked on the FIRST try… we shall see how it continues…

NOPE: I STILL have to try to go “Back” more than once to get back… Was NOT like that before (week ago).
