Anyone know how to re-expand internet explorer windows?

Not sure how to explain this one, but basically when I have 15 internet explorer windows open they all condense into one that says 15 Internet Explorer. When I click on it I see a list of all the windows and choose which one I want. I want to re-expand them back to how they were before I accidentaly opened the 15th window, only problem is that it only does it when I close them down until there's about 4 left. Which means I've got to go back and open loads up again. Is there an easier way of doing it?

Thanks!

Try ALT+TAB

Basically Hold ALT and press TAB the required amount of times you need to get the page you want

I know!

But I like to see them all at the bottom to quickly change between windows. Not to go to alt tab and try to find which one I want.

dont use 15 explorer windows as each one will use memory and slow your pc to a crawl. use TABS or better still, stop using IE altogether and enter the 21st century by using Firefox 3.0 or Opera browser.

Far more customisable especially where windows/tabs are concerned

I have a 486 though so my pc doesn't slow down!

I've tried Firefox but to be honest I never notice any slow down with 20 windows open so I have no reason to change.

Thanks anyway.

I agree

within firefox, tabs for each window appear across the top and just by putting the cursor on one allows you to switch between them all forwards and backwards just by using the scroll mouse.

install these great ff add-ons

colorfultabs. assigns different colours to tabs depending on content (fully customisable)

tab mix plus (allows re-opening of last known closed 10 tabs, or close all tabs except current tab etc etc.)

tab sidebar - view each window in a scrollable sidebar (see screenshot)

Thanks csi, it looks lovely but I like the nice simple view I've got. I don't want to spend ages customizing it just how I want it.

I just need to be able to flick between windows quickly and easily to see how different shares are doing and to see how my career is doing on calvin klein!

Anyway, I'd get a different weather plug in, the one you've got says it's sunny!

its gone back up again now so only getting throttled for 5 hours per day :w00t:

btw, the add-ons only take a minute to install and I havent customised any of them so not quite 'ages' :)
