New Browser Window

Recommended Posts


When I use the following function to navigate to a page, it will use an already opened browser to navigate if one is actually open. How can I make it so that the following code opens a new, seperate browser if there is a browser already open?

Func _BrowseURL($sURL)
    RunWait(@Comspec & ' /c START "" "' & $sURL & '"', "", @SW_HIDE)

I use Firefox and I set it in the browser to open a new tab, maybe IE has the same option, oh wait no tabs, maybe it will let you open a new window.


Looking at IE options:

Under Advanced I see an option 'Reuse Windows for launching shortcuts'

Maybe thats it.

Ah yes. THere is an option in the Advanced tab of IE called "Reuse windows for launching shortcuts." I removed the check and all it good now.

Does anyone know the registry key to read this option? I'd like to be able to adjust this through the registry if ever needed.
