Consolidate tabs from separate IE7 windows?

    Is there a way to consolidate separate IE7 window instances, opened by links
    that force a new browser instance to be opened, back into the original IE 7
    instance as a new tab?

    In other words, it would be sweet if you could drag a tab (or the whole IE7)
    to another instance of an IE7 and that separate instance would then merge
    into more tabs in the destination IE7.

    Try Tools\Internet Options. On General Tab at bottom, you will see "Change
    how WebPages are displayed in tabs." Click settings and in bottom box "Open
    links from other programs in" and choose "A new tab in current window." See
    if that does the trick. If not, then someone with more knowledge than what
    I have will have to answer.

    Thanks for your suggestion, but that's how my options were already set.

    I guess my question was more general. For example, if I accidentally (or on
    purpose) opened a new session of IE7 in a separate window, is there a way for
    me to then merge that separate window into another IE7, and thus create new
    tab(s) in the destination IE7 from where the separate session had browsed?

    Or more generally, is there a way to individually drag/drop tabs from one
    IE7 session to another, or to separate a given tab or tabs into individual
    sessions at will?

    If there's not a way to do this, I think it would be a neat feature to have.
