The central location for E2E training, feature updates, member feedback and site support
I have always used the Target new window/_blank from the Insert/edit link button, because I want readers to be able to pop between their current E2E page and a referenced document or webpage.
When I used to be using FF most of the time, I thought this worked to open that new page in a new tab in the same browser window. But I have noticed recently that on IE8 it opens a new window.
Someone commented a year or more ago on the new window thing as being irritating to users, and I disagreed because I saw it as a new tab which I do not find irritating. But opening a new window, I agree that it is irritating.
A few minutes searching the web to find a solution worried me into thinking there is not one, other than the user right-clicking and forcing the link to a new tab.
Do any of you Awesome Internet Knowers have better answers for me than "can't do it"? Please?
Thanks in advance for anything,RandyP

I'm not aware of anything that has been done to resolve this known IE8 issue from an HTML or programming stand point.
IE8 users can adjust their browser settings to open pop ups in new tabs instead of windows which could solve it and they can use the middle mouse button when hovering over and then clicking on links.

Do you know what that adjustment in IE8 browser settings would be? I changed one called "Reuse windows for launching shortcuts", but that did not help.
Life is back to normal again.
Glad to help!
