Setting links to open in new windows
Posted on 2007-12-06
On our website, we have some links to .doc files.
On some users, when they click on the link, the document opens up inside Internet Explorer. The problem is, however, that the user often thinks they are closing the document, and end up shutting down the whole browser and session. I know we can set the links to have a target that will be a new window. But, I have these questions.
1) In IE6, is there a setting that tells the document to open in a new setting?
2) Is "not" opening up in a new window the default with new IE installations?
3) How does IE7 treat links to documents? I have IE7 and it seems to open in a new window, but I can't see where that is set.
Thanks in advance!
