EMBEDDED LINKS

I need to ask a dumb question, sorry
Whenever I check out a link someone has provided in their post it doesn't open a new window in my browser and takes me away from the SMB Forum. Same if I check out someone's gallery.
Is there a setting in my profile to change this?

Thanks!

Re: EMBEDDED LINKS

I don't think so. The easiest solution is to right click on the link and choose "Open Line in New Tab" with Firefox. I think IE has a similar option...

Re: EMBEDDED LINKS

With Internet Explorer, if I hold down the Shift button while clicking on a link it will open in a new window. If I hold down the Ctrl button it will open a new page in the same window.

Re: EMBEDDED LINKS

you guys are great. thanks
the right click option is a perfect solution for me. I use Firefox.
I don't think I've ever right clicked on a link before.
man, now I feel really dumb and I thought I was somewhat computer savvy

thanks
