    Is it possible to use a seperate process when creating a new window from
    within Internet Explorer? In particular I would like IE to start a new
    process when javascript:eek:pen() is used.

    Hi Tahg,

    Tools>Internet Options - Advanced tab, uncheck "Re-use windows for launching
    shortcuts (when tabbed browsing is enabled)"

    If you specify javascript:window.open(surl, "_blank") IE will open multiple
    windows of the same url (surl) when the link is clicked multiple times.

    If you specify javascript:window.open(surl, "myWindow") IE will only open up
    one window with the surl address, no matter how many times the link is
    clicked.

    The same with hyperlinks <a href="<%=sulr%>" target="_blank">Open multiple
    copies</a>
    <a href="<%=sulr%>" target="myWindow">Open one myWindow only, no matter how
    many times I click</a>

    Regards.

    The javascript call is in a page I'm accessing and is beyond my control.
    It's written to reuse the same window no matter how much I click the link.
    Either way is fine for me, that's not the problem.

    As I originally asked, I want to know if it's possible to create a new
    _process_ for new windows. I use plugins such as java and flash a lot and
    they tend to crash IE occasionally. I would like to be able to isolate them
    in their own browser processes.
    I use IE7.

  4. I always get a new IE task when starting IE using the Start menu. YMMV.
    A more reliable way to get a new task is to use the -new switch on the command line (e.g. via the Run... dialog.)
