Help with opening new windows instead of tabs needed pleeease

Last year I had the same problem and I phoned BT (my broadband supplier) and they did something and it was sorted. Now it's happening again - some setting I must have pressed I expect!
Every time I go to 'BT Broadband' icon to open a new window for HUKD or Ebay etc.. a new window opens but when I try to do the exact same thing again (so I have two open) it opens a new tab instead. Can anyone tell me what I need to do as I can't bear the thought of having to be put on hold with BT (or any company) and listen to that poxy music they play!
Any help appreciated x x

My post is a bit of a muddle!! I'm trying to open a new window (so I can flick through them at the bottom of the page) but it keeps opening a new tab instead. Thanks though x

Thanks, just taken a look and there seem to be loads of options - tried a few with no luck though. I'll give a few more a try. Thanks again x

Get used to using tabs. far more efficient as every browser session you start with New window consumes a load of memory. Makes for a very slow browsing experience.

or better still, use Firefox browser rather than IE.

or if you must use a new session:-

Tools> Options> Advanced> "Reuse windows for launching shortcuts"

Simply right click on any link and select "open in new window"

But if you're saying using more memory slows down the browsing experience then why recommend firefox? It's well known to use more memory than other browsers, especially in 2.0.

Besides, I don't know about IE7 but the memory overhead shouldn't be that high. I've just done a quick check in opera and the extra memory needed for three windows instead of three tabs is 3MB, an amount that's hardly going to slow you down.

Are you using Internet Explorer?

If yes then go to Tools --> Internet Options --> Find the "Tabs" section in the General Section,--> click settings --> And make sure "Enable Tabbed Browsing" box (the first one!) is not checked. Then close all IE windows and try then.

In Firefox go to Tools --> Options --> click on the Tabs section across the top --> The top setting should read "New pages should be opened in..." and then check the box "a new window".

Try opening multiple IE windows. Each one uses 20mb. This will slow down your PC if you have many open as the OP suggests.
