how do I get links/shortcuts to open in new tab

Vista Home Premium, latest upgrades.
Most of the time, clicking on a new link or desktop shortcut will open in a
new tab.
But not always.
Sometimes it knocks out the IE and Tab I'm viewing and overwrites it.

For Instance.
If I'm viewing eBay in a tab
and I wish to open PayPal to check my balance
Clicking on the PayPal desktop icon opens in the eBay tab instead of a new
tab.

I've looked all over, and can't find the reason.
One or two other shortcuts do the same.

Please and thank you.

Re: how do I get links/shortcuts to open in new tab
Hi,
There isn't a setting which will open *every* hyperlink or internet shortcut
in a new tab. You will have to use Crtl+click on hyperlinks.

Or you can clone the tab before clicking the internet shortcut. Hit Ctrl+d
then Ctrl+Enter.

Your internet shortcut on the desktop can be altered to always open a new
window (not a tab) with this method:
Find "IExplore.exe" (probably in Program Files\Internet Explorer)
Right-click and drag IExplore.exe to the desktop and choose "Create
shortcut." Right-click that shortcut> Properties> Target, modify the Target
to include the URL.
Example:
"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE"
becomes
"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE" www.yahoo.com
Note a space between EXE" and ww
Rename the shortcut if desired.

Hope this helps,
Don

Open 'Tools-->Internet Options' and click the "Settings" button to
the right of "Tabs" and set your desired options.
