I am wondering if there is a way to setup a url link which would open a new browser window with a separate process instead of currently in the same process?

Thanks
George

I'm not sure what you mean, or why you would want to do that, but you can get a seperate window easily by specifying a target:

<A href="http://server.com/page.html"   target="_new" > open </a>

Commented:
<a href="http://www.yourlink.com" target="_top">link</a>

It may be because of an issue with session cookies, or similar. Depending on the processing code there may be another way to handle it if that's the case.

these links do open new windows,  but they are under same process id (if you look at windows task manager).

I need two IE process just like you open two browser session manually.

Well then we should be looking at the root of the problem instead. Does this particular page have a lot of images on it? Or is it all web pages?
