IE7 flips from new webpage to first webpage

    Everytime I open a 2nd or more window using IE7, the screen flips back to the
    1st webpage opened. Doesn't matter if all the preceeding pages are minimized
    or not. This is very frustrating.

    Tools>Internet Options>Tabs Settings Button
    Check Always Switch to New Tabs when they are created
    Click Ok
    Click Apply
    Click OK

    You can set tab preferences.

    Thanks, Pat. Solved 1/2 the problem. If the previous webpages are minimized
    such that they do not show on the screen, then the next webpage will open and
    be displayed. However, if the earlier webpages are open in any way, the new
    webpage will not display--it will be behind all the other open pages. Any
    ideas on how to bring the last opened page to the front? Only one tab is
    checked "Always switch to new tab..." And I restarted my computer.

    Hi,
    This may solve the 2nd half of the problem...

    [Windows XP]
    See:
    886217- New program window appears behind all other open windows on Windows
    2000, Windows XP or Windows Server 2003
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=886217

    Note (in that article) that TweakUI can make the registry edit, if you don't
    wish to do it manually.

    The UNDO file at http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm (line #66
    right-side) makes the same registry edit.

    Hope this helps,
    Don
