    Hello, as stated in the Subject, when I use Google Desktop (version I just
    downloaded yesterday) and Internet Explorer 7, Google Desktop opens up a new
    window instead of opening a new tab.

    I have Tabbed Browsing enabled, and opening up a website from the Run box
    (e.g., Start->Run-> opens up a new tab in my current
    Internet Explorer window. I have "Open links from other programs in:" set to
    "A new tab in the current window." In the Registry, ShortcutBehavior
    correctly reflects this as "1."

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi Jim,

    I do not believe you will be able to get Google Desktop to open in a tab. It
    is designed to be a separate application. When you open Google Desktop
    essentially you are running a separate program.

    Thanks for your response. However, the language in the option, i.e., "Open
    links from other programs," refers specifically to separate application.
    Also, links from Outlook and from a 3rd-party software called Mr Questionman
    open in a new window. However, maybe this means I should take my concern up
    at the Google forums.
