    IE10 Browsing always opens in new tabs?

    Hi all-
    I know this isn't a "Windows 8" question per se, but IE 10 is only in Win 8 so where else would I post this?

    I am, like you all, working through my love-hate with Windows 8. I can't get totally on board the LOVE just yet, and here is one reason why...

    I used to enjoy browsing in IE10. I don't think I changed any settings in particular, but now suddenly every link I click on opens in a new tab, instead of in the current window.

    I looked under INTERNET>OPTIONS>ADVANCED, and the box "Reuse Window For Opening Links (when tabbed browsing) is indeed checked/ticked.

    Does anyone else know where this setting can be under Windows 8/IE 10?

    Hello Chap,

    Double check your "Tabbed Browsing Settings" in Internet Options to see if they are set like below.
