    URLs opening in a new window

    Dearest Master Administrator:

    I looked for the answer to this question and did not see one. If it has been addressed already, please forgive me.

    When I click on embedded links within postings, I end up automatically leaving the Master Russian site and going to the new site within the embedded link. Then I have to come back to Master Russian on a new tab or arrow back. It is a minor pain, but still bothersome.

    Is there a way to have the link open in a new window automatically when I click on the link? As a work around for now I am copying and pasting the link and opening a new window on my own.

    Or is there something on my end that I need to do with my computer settings?

    Please advise,
    Rockzmom.

    You can right-click on a link and then select "open in a new tab" or "open in a new window"

    Another comfortable way to solve this problem is using the middle button on your mouse. But your browser has to support this feature. Try to figure out if it does or not. If it does, just try clicking links with the middle button. =)
    ps: I don't have any Internet Explorer browser installed on my PC, 'cause I work in Linux. I do not remember if IE supports this.
    do you know what Linux is?

    Blacky!

    You are too wonderful! That works as well! Both you and the Master Admin have taught me two new tricks today. I feel like Kelly Bundy. What two things that I know am I going to forget now?

    Thank you both for being so kind about this and not making fun of me.
