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?

Thanks
Chap

You can uncheck the box for tabbed browsing and it will work the way you are requesting...

Hello Chap,

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