    Open IE window redirects on link click (5.5 SP1)

    Here's an IE annoyance I've wanted to cure for ages. Say you have an IE window open to something, and you want it to stay open to that page. Then you get an email message with an embedded link, or you click on a hyperlink you've previously saved to disk. IE will always use your open window to go to this location. I'd like to know how to force it to open a *new* window for this purpose instead. If you're clicking on a link within IE, you can right click and choose 'open in new window'. But if you're clicking on an email or disk-bound hyperlink, there's no such option. Any ideas?

    Thanks, Balarama
