    I have no idea how tricky this would be to do, but it would be convenient to have, say clicking on someone's website here opening in a new window. I know that I can do it myself "manually", (ctrl n), but it would be handy if not too much trouble.

    Thanks for answering. It's funny, isn't it, how lazy we can get about things? I'm old enough to remember having to get up to change the channel!

    I just "right click" on the url / website address, then "left click" on Open in New Window in the menu that appears. Same as Cntrl N for New Window

    I know on the first host I used for TGS I was able to make a distinction between opening in a new window or not but I havent come across the option yet on my control pannel. So I should have said "it isnt an option that I have located"

    I right-click and "open in a new window" all the time now. Works like a dream, thanks again.

    You're welcome. It works on most anything on the internet. Board Index/topics too.
