Hi Mods,

A quick question on links in a post and how it opens up.

When I click on a link (either to another topic in the forum, or to an external website), it navigates away from the webpage and goes to the one on the link. It doesn't open a new window. I have tried this on various computers with various Browsers and it is always the same.

If I have followed a link, sometimes it is difficult to get back to where I started, clicking "back" all the time.

Is there any way of changing this??
Is there any way of setting the systen up so that when a link is clicked on, a new window opens?

Thanks
Yoda

I don't think it can be changed yoda ,but there is a way around it..What browser are you on ? In Mozilla Firefox If I right-click on the link..I can choose either Open in a new window or open in a new tab ..
KUDU's mean Well done and Thank you

There's an even quicker way that is browser independent.

Hold the Ctrl button when clicking on the link and it will open in a new tab. Hold the Shift key while clicking on the link and it will open a new browser window.
Want to say Thank You or Well Done to a fellow 'mite? Why not nominate them for a Kudu?
