Re-using IE window

Hello,

We have a Powerpoint presentation with links to URLs.

It seems that every time I click on a link, it opens a new browser window on my system. I want it to re-use the same window.  I'm using IE6.

Is this possible and, if so, how?

Thanks in advance.

Steve

skbohler,

In IE6, go to Tools > Options > Advanced tab.  Check "Reuse window for launching shortcuts".

Some links forces you to open in new window, no matter what your settings are.

Unfortunately, I already have that setting set.

Sounds like I might not have a solution for it then.

You're looking to open the web page 'inside' the power point presentation?
Yeah, I don't think that's possible...unless I've misunderstood...?

Well, I would just like Powerpoint to use the same browser window for each URL. Not open new browser windows.
