How to force links to open another tab instead of another instance of IE7.

With Internet Explorer version 7 when you click on a link in a page, sometimes the link opens in another tab but sometimes it opens another instance of IE7. If I hold the CTRL key while clicking the link it seems to force the link to open in another tab. But I don't want to have to press the CTRL key every time I click on a link to force it to open in another tab. Is there a setting I can change to force ALL links to open in another tab instead of opening another instance of IE7? I've looked in the options but do not see any settings that seem to control this behavior.

Greetings donander !

Where the link opens is a function of the HTML on the webpage, not on your browser.  

Holding the CTRL key is the only way to over-ride the HTML.  Another way is to right click on the link and select open in new tab.

Best wishes, war1
