Multiple windows open but not wanted

  bearface 11:51 05 Sep 08

My internet home page is When I click on the Hotmail sign-in on the right hand side of my home page it opens a new window for my sign-in box. When I sign in it then reverts to the window with the contents of the hotmail inbox visible on the right hand side of the screen. When I then click on the inbox it displays my inbox on a full screen in yet another window.
Consequently when I read my email I now have three windows open which is a nuisance.
Does anyone know a cure for this, please?

Are you on IE7?

If so choose tools > internet options > advanced tab then choose reuse windows for launching shortcuts. Apply and close.

If you are using tabbed browsing then in internet options, general tab > settings under tabs and select let IE decide for pop ups and new tab in same window for links. Again apply close.

Thanks for the advice. It has resolved the problem. The only issue I have as a result of doing this is that when I follow a link which is embedded in an email it uses the same window so when I close the link it also closes my email!
