    Why Shift Before Clicking Lounge Link?

    Why is there a suggestion to hit shift before clicking a link in the Lounge?

    I believe this is advice for people who are intending to follow one of the advertising links, to help them open the link in a new window if they wish.

    Pressing the shift key will actually open a new window... regardless of the type of link. For example, press shift and hold before you click on the message number link.

    In the Lounge holding down the Windows key, after it puts up the Start menu as it always does, and clicking on a link does the same thing. I thought that shift might have some special context in the Lounge or facilitate opening a window faster.
