Open new windows page
I can right click a topic in a web page and select "Open in new tab" or "Open
in new window". Is there a way that I can change settings in IE 8 that will
allow me to open in a new window when I just click on it? I realize the right
click is a very small inconvenience, but I'd like that option if it's
possible.

Press Ctrl- or Shift- when you click. Or just use Middleclick.
