I just joined experts exchange today so please let me know if I post something incorrectly.  I have an html page that contains the following javascript:

window.open("mailto:xxx.yyy.com");

My default email program is Outlook 2016.  When I execute this code on IE11, Firefox, or Edge it correctly pops up a blank email window from Outlook 2016.  When I execute this code in Chrome, I get the correct blank email window from Outlook 2016 but I also get another blank browser window as well which I manually have to close.  Is there any workaround to not have that extra blank browser window pop up in Chrome.  Thank you for any replies.
