Clicking "Home" Opens a New Tab EVERY Time - Help
I just got a new computer and am running Vista for the first time.
When I use IE7 and click on the "Home" icon it opens a new tab EVERY
time. After several home clicks I have multiple tabs opened - all
showing my Home pag.

How can I avoid this?

Thanks

Bojangles

You could reproduce your symptoms by
1. Having a Home page with 2 entries
2. Using a tab option which says open a home page.

So, change your Home page to about:Blank only
and change your tab option to open about:Tabs
and see if your symptoms change.
