    Problem with new tabs

    I have my tabs set to open a new tab in the existing window, but new tabs are opening a complete new window. In looking at the settings I don't see anything amiss. Do any of you?

    John, The only change I have is I let IE control how Pop Ups are handled. Otherwise the same as you:

    This is using IE 10 in Win 8 DP. My IE 9 is set the same.

    How are the new tabs being opened?

    Have you tried a system restore?

    Two thoughts:

    (1) Sometimes it helps to turn off the setting you want, OK that so IE saves it, then go back and turn it back on.

    (2) In some cases, a popup window may be exempt from redirection to a tab based on how it is coded. Is there are particular page or site that isn't working correctly that you can link to?
