New Browser Window

by Barbara J. Feldman on March 23, 2004

In many browsers, including Internet Explorer and Mozilla, holding the shift key down while clicking on a link will open the site in a new browser window. This is useful when visiting a list of links, so you do not need to use your back button to return to the original link list. In Netscape, control-click will do the same. Another way to do this in any Windows browser is via the right-mouse click menu.
