Hello fellow? experts,

I have been looking for a way to open a new background window from any link displayed by Internet Explorer.  I know Opera and K-meleon browsers do this.. so therefore it can be done, but how?  Ultimately I would just like to add a 'open in background' to the right click context menu in IE.  

CMenuExtender v1.2.1.0 <- this is a program I downloaded that allows me to add to the right click menu (in IE).  The program allows for entering command lines for a right click action.

What I want:  Right click and open those websites automatically in the background.

Please close this question.  I have found the anwser, I used IEBooster and removed the unwanted items and left a function that allows me to open a new minimized window.  So those web sites load minimized and in the background.  I have asked another question on specific order of the context menu here:  


Please refund points
