Hello, use this:

Private Sub WebBrowser1_NewWindow2(ppDisp As Object, Cancel As Boolean)
    Set ppDisp = Nothing
    Cancel = True
End Sub

Just a warning, with certain versions of Internet Explorer I have noticed that it tends to crash when you block new windows from opening like that. I would recommend giving the user a choice of enabling/disable it, just in case.

The problem with this method is that it will block the window even when you right click on a link and choose "open in new window" .
how can I fix that ?

I don't think there is an easy way to do this...
