    When I click on the My Email Inbox from the MSN Messenger it opens a new
    windows instead of openening a new tab within the already opened IE7B2P
    windows. Is there any workaround available for this?

  2. I have the exact opposite problem...when I click to open my email inbox from
    Messenger, it opens in a new tab in whatever IE window I already have open -
    but I want it to open in a new window. Any idea what setting I should change?

    Hi,
    No guarantees this will work, but try:
    Internet Options> General> Tabs> Settings>
    * Always open pop-ups in a new window
    * Open links from other programs in a new window

    Hope this helps,

    change?

  4. It looked like a good idea to me too...but still didn't work. For some
    reason, Messenger want to open my inbox in a new tab.

    Amit, have you tried setting these settings the other way so that new
    windows open in new tabs instead?

  6. I don't have a problem with Hotmail being my default mail client...I have the
    exact opposite problem as Amit Bhatta; I want my Hotmail inbox to open in a
    new window instead of a new tab.

    No. Guys. I tried everything but still the link opens in a new window and not
    in the new tab. Anyways not a big deal.

    Hi,
    I can't find Amit's original post, so are we dealing with Windows XP or
    Vista?

  9. Original post was dated 2/8/2006. Also refers to IE7B2P.
    Therefore, probably not Vista. <eg>

    My guess would be that this could be an early instance of the nVidia problem symptom.


    FYI

    I too have a similar problem. When I click on My Email Inbox from Messenger,
    it opens a new window which is left at my Hotmail sign-in screen, then TAKES
    OVER my previously opened window and brings up my inbox. I have tabbed
    browsing turned off and I'm using Vista. Help! This is driving me crazy!
