Ie Keyboard Shortcut For Open Link In New Tab


The help file for internet explorer states that the keyboard shortcut for "open links in a new tab in the background" is "ctrl+click", yet last i looked "click" is not a key, it is a mouse activity. How does a non-mouse user (blind, physical disability) perform "ctrl+click", or rather, how does a non-mouse user open links in a new tab in the background?

Open In New Tab Just Sticks

I can't seem to get a connection with "open in a new tab" and "open in a new window" doesn't work at all. This worked fine on vista but just did a full install of win7. I thought maybe norton was the problem and unistalled but problem is still going. Anyone else have this problem?

Shortcut Keys Changing Keyboard Language

Concerning short cut keys (ctrl + shift) changing keyboard language setting and changing the short cut key. For all the windows versions i worked with there is one short cut key set which has annoyed the out of me. Being ctrl + shift. Why? Simply because it changes the language setting of my keyboard from the used (us/international ) to the near non-existent (dutch ) and of course back if i accidentally hit it again.

In the netherlands, us/international is the standard keyboard format, yet all the version of windows have supplied us with a dutch keyboard setting (which is totally different, and jumbles up you key bindings big time)! This dutch keyboard however does not exist or is extremely rare, and it's a mystery to me why it is still existent.

To change the keyboard settings however there is the above mentioned short-cut combo (ctrl+shift) which is easy to hit accidentally. I want to get rid of the short cut key combination to prevent the constant frustration of discovering i accidentally changed the settings.

Is that possible? If so, how?

Open Link In A New Window Not Available

When using some links i'd like to open the link in a new window using the shift key or right clicking and selecting "open new window". However, this feature is not always available. For example, when right clicking on some links, i get other options but not "open new window". So i hold down the shift key and it does not open the link in a new window. The right clicking "new window" option and shift key, is available on some links but not all. I have windows 7 ie 8

Keyboard Shortcuts To Open Programs

I prefer using keyboard shortcuts (ctrl alt +[letter] to open often used programs. I set the shortcuts and everything is fine until the computer turns off or a system update restarts it. Then my shortcuts stop working. Sometimes the shortcut evaporated; sometimes it is still there but does not function. Either way i have to redo the shortcuts. I've noticed this with microsoft office suite programs, it does not affect other non-ms office programs like chrome or notepad.

New Shortcut Does Not Create Shortcut

When i try to create a shortcut with my mouse, using my right button, i left click on "new" and then on "shortcut". Nothing happens at this point. Same thing if i try to do that in explorer. I am using windows 7, clean install. Ms explorer mouse and a ms keyboard model 6000 v3. 0. I also do not get volume control with this keyboard; i do not use the lazer mouse that came with the keyboard. I asked this before but never received an answer. Please, is there a way to turn this feature back on?

Tab For Recycle Bin

Can't see files in he recycle bin from drives other than c:all files deleted from the root drive c: can be seen in the recycle bin. Having multiple drives (local and networks), if you delete a file it goes to the recycle bin, but you can 't see. Steps taken. I can see all of my drives' recycle bin when i change view setting to show hidden files. What i can't do - not sure i should be able to do - is change the attribute settings on the recycle bin's to deselected hide file. Maybe that is what's missing. Any suggestions?

Solution To Alt Tab Not Working

This is not a question but a solution that took me about a month to find.consistently found alt tab to change programs would not work, and when i hovered over the taskbar at the bottom of the screen, the postage stamp image of the application would flash on once then disappear. Sometimes i could just not get an open application to maximize. Usually use my hp laptop at a workstation but when using it in another location noticed the problem had disappeared.

Figured there was something about the workstation. Tried back at the workstation and through a process of trial and error found it was a logitech skype usb speaker phone. It is a fairly old model - maybe 2007 - which i got as a freebee when i purchased a pc. It doesn't seem to like windows 7. Unplugged it and there is no further problem.

Classic Mode Using Alt+tab

I'm running win7 ultimate in the classic mode (the aero mode was just too much visual noise) and for years i've used the alt+tab to switch between applications. Starting with vista the contents of the pop-up alt+tab window sorts and does not retain the positions as it did in xp. Are there any settings that i can change to get the xp non-sorted window. With the darn sorting i find myself searching for the "the" window i want to bring to the foreground. I almost always have several applications running (10-20) and multiple windows within each application thus it is not uncommon that i will have 30-50 windows open when i'm researching a topic and attempting to create a document or presentation on the topic.

Power Management Tab Missing

I just reinstalled windows 7 home on my tablet pc, the hp tm2t. Since i switched my hdd to an ssd. However, as i'm setting the tablet pc's multitouch function so that it would be responsive after idle (before my reinstall, i could uncheck "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power"), i realized the power management tab in device manager isn't there anymore.

The item i'm looking for is under the human interface devices -> usb input device (it's not specified, but this device manages the multitouch for my tablet). I still see the power management tab for my wireless card, biometric devices (fingerprint reader) and some other usb root hubs. Does anyone else have the same problem? Or know a fix?

Force Aero Tab Preview, Transparency

I am running windows 7 ultimate with dual-monitors and a high-end video card that is aero-capable. However, i run an additional monitor for background work that is connected to my computer viaa usb to vga converter. Upon connecting the converter aero tab preview, transparency and peek go away. I would like to have those aero features enabled, at least on the main monitors, with the usb to vga converter attached.

Running the aero troubleshooter indicates that wddm session manager was disabled, but corrected that problem (actually the wddm session manager is consistently reported as "started" so i'm not sure what the troubleshooter is telling me). I have read in other forums about a registry modification method (adding dwords to hkey_current_usersoftwaremicrosoftwindowsdwm) but this does not work.contacting the manufacturer of the converter, siig, did not result in any solutions.

So i am hoping that you can suggest amethod to force aero tab preview, transparency and peek even if the usb to vga converter does not meet aero hardware requirements.

Folder / File Permissions In Properties Tab

I have a particular program that will not start because i do not have write permissions for the folder, sub-folders, and files associated with the program. Going to the properties tab reveals that the folder is read only. I uncheck the box but can't seem to make it a permanent change. It always comes back up as read only. I have gone into every imaginable edit/advanced tab possible and given permissions to every possible group i can think of, yet despite the fact that every kind of permission possible is enabled and visible, i still can't uncheck the read-only box permanently and i still get "you do not have write permissions" from the program. I have tried changing ownership, running as administrator, and yet no progress on this problem.

Aero Alt+tab Application Keeps Popping Up

I have a windows 7 professional system and for some reason the little window that comes up when you press alt+tab keeps popping up on its own. Whether i'm at my system working or i'm away from my system it keeps popping up on its own. I've tried reinstalling the drivers for my keyboard and mouse. I've made sure my system is up to date with all the latest updates but this problem keeps happening. I haven't been able to find more information about this anywhere, though i may be using the wrong search terms because i dont know what that alt+tab window is called. Keyboard/mouse i'm currently using is microsoft wireless laser desktop 6000 (v2 i think).

Uninstall Ie8 Tab Missing In Add/remove List

I need to uninstall & reinstall ie8 on my pc running win xp/sp3. But on the add/remove programs list under ie8, the uninstall tab is missing. The reason that i need to uninstall is that ie 8 hangs every so often. It has been suggested to me that my problem might be caused by installing ie8 before installing sp3 after my pc was in for repairs. If this is what is causing the problem, should i uninstall sp3 and see if this allows me to then uninstall ie8? Or is there another fix for this issue?

My Documents Shortcut Does Not Work

I am in a school environment where we do not allow students to access the c drive. We also redirect students my documentsť folder to a network file storage server. We are in the process of converting to windows 7 and found that when a student tries to access their my documentsť from their desktop they get an access denied message.

We would like to keep students from accessing the c drive but allow them the use of the desktop short cut for their my documentsť. We are pretty sure this is due to the fact that the my documentsť folder is now a subfolder on the desktop. Is there a simple fix to allow students access only to their my documentsť folder?

Win 7 Shortcut Key

Trying to find a thread on keyboard shortcuts for win7. Specifically: in vista the windows+space bar brought you to the sidebar for easy access to your gadgets. In win7 the keystroke gets you to a (temporary) state on the desktop, but it doesn't persist. In other words, when you release the key combo, you return to whatever windows were open.

I am aware that you can click in the far right space on the task bar to go to the desktop; you can even set a preference to either peek or show the desktop. But that means having to remove your hands from the keyboard. Windows + p toggles your displays. So what are the all the keyboard shortcuts?

Shortcut Keys Not Working

Ctrl + a and ctrl + d stopped working in the mail program to select all and delete selected emails. These functions work if accessed through edit on the toolbar but not if want to use the shortcut keys.
Also, backspace key is not functioning on one particular website i access. The backspace arrow in upper left corner functions properly but not the backspace key.

This makes browsing very slow and this is a shopping site that you want to be able to browse back and forth easily from a product to it's description and back to the next product. Oddly enough, this is the only site i have this problem with so i thought the problem was on their end, except my problem with the other shortcut keys makes me suspect. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Shortcut Icons Disappear

My problem is similar to raynman's but on a desktop (hp with win 7 home premium), so it isn't related to closing a laptop. My games shortcut icons sometimes disappear, plus a shortcut to broadband internet connection. It doesn't happen except when booting up or waking up, but it doesn't happen often either. Just unpredictably. Only way to restore the missing icons is to recreate each one.

I've seen this behavior in previous windows versions back to 3. 1. By this time windows really ought to include a desktop-memorizing and restoring function, not just for icon positions but for the icons themselves, and not just for system icons.

Network Shortcut Disappeared

I'm a system administrator for a small-medium company. We are moving to windows 7, because i think it's faster and reliable than xp. But we have a little problem: all the client that are using a new windows seven pc , complain about the same little (but annoying) problem: some times (generally after reboot, but not ever) all "network shortcut" disappear from desktop without any reason.

With the word "network shortcut" i mean: link to remote folder (folder on a network file server), link to network computer, or link for my own connections (like vpn connection to my company). An yway only link to network resources are affected by this problem, [desktop icon, internal link, ore file icons, are not affected by this problem].

Why Does Win 7 Delete Shortcut Icons?

I have windows 7 enterprise loaded on my laptop. My favorite games are freecell, spider solitaire, solitaire, minesweeper, mahjong titans, and chess titans. As i play these games often i made shortcuts on my desktop. When the screen-saver comes on i have it set to 3d text with the time displayed and on resume, display logon screen. I have it set to go to screensaver after 10 minutes then under my custom plan settings the display goes off after 20 minutes.

When i return after the display has turned off i type in my password and when the display comes back on the shortcuts for these games have been removed. I have 6 other desktop icons and these are still there only the game icons get removed. Is there a reason this happens and is there a way to keep this from happening?

Restore Application Data Shortcut

I have to admit i did this one to myself.

On the user profile (c:users
Ame) if you turn off the "hide protected operating system files" setting, it displays a number of "shortcuts". If these have been deleted, are there any way to restore them. It seems they are not really shortcuts but junctions.

What happens if i install a program that is still looking for the %application data% variable, it will create a directory on c:users
Ameapplication data instead of placing it on c:users
Amelocalroaming

Any help will be greatly appreciated to save me from myself.

Cannot Change Desktop Shortcut Icon

I've got an application shortcut on my desktop which leads to a dos based executable. The icon is apparently generic windows 7. I've tried to change it several times to one of the icons in shell32.dll. No luck, the apply button remains greyed out, even though for all intense and purposes the shortcut itself recognizes the icon as it is depicted in the upper left hand corner of properties. If i change any of the other settings and apply the icon it is still not transferred. This is only true of this "dos" based app.
