    I am running internet explorer 9 on a desktop with Microsoft 7 and 64 bit
    processor.
    I know how to get 2 or more windows to open on my desktop but am unable to
    do so with IE 9.
    I want to compare 2 web sites side by side showing monitors that I want to
    compare but can only get one to appear at a time; the other is in the
    thumbnail at the bottom but if opened then the first drops out to the
    thumbnail.
    How can I get the 2 images to appear side by side?
    Thank you

    Hi,

    See if a browser add-on is causing the problem.

    Start Internet Explorer without add-ons by right-clicking the IE icon on the
    desktop. Choose Start without add-ons.
    or
    from Start> Programs> Accessories> System tools> Internet Explorer (no
    add-ons)
    If the problem goes away, an add-on is causing it.

    To determine which add-on is causing the problem see:

    Thanks Don, I have always had IE running without add-ons so that is not the
    answer.
    I shall keep trying other approaches as I think it must be possible.

    Presumably you're using 32-bit IE without tabs?
    (I've never used tabs, so I don't know whether
    it's possible to have 2 tabbed windows open.)

    I find there's no problem, on Win7 64 w/IE9, opening
    two instances with "normal" window showing (not
    minimized and not maximized). However, that might
    not work if you're clicking links. In that case, check
    the setting in Tools -> Internet Options -> Advanced
    that's marked something like,
    "Reuse windows.... (when not using tabs)"

    Another possibility is that it may not work with ganged
    up taskbar icons. I'm not sure, but the behavior you see
    may be normal in that case. If your icons are ganged up
    (I think they call it "grouped") then you may need to
    change the setting for that. It may be right-click on the
    taskbar. I'm not sure as I'm normally on XP with IE6 and when
    I use Vista/7 I don't enable grouped taskbar icons. (These
    complications are just a few of the many reasons I'm not
    running a later version of either Windows or IE. :)

    I now have the answer; the 2 web sites have a tab each and if I click on
    the tab I can drag it onto the desktop and compare 2 side by side.
    Again, thanks to all.

    Firefox is remarkable due to the amount of add-ons available. you can pretty much do anything with it if you browse through the add-ossify you don't know how to use Mozilla add-ons- click on add to Firefox, a pop up window will show. Click on install now. Then you have to restart Firefox. Then when you go to tools- options- you will see a new section named tabbed browsing and have a lot of options there. The one you are looking for is under 'user interface'. Where you will change the setting 'when loading new tabs load the' to either blank page/home page/ or CURRENT WEBPAGE'.
