How do you get two browser windows open on the screen at one time?

Answer

This question was answered on December 13, 2003. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

I assume you are using Internet Explorer under Microsoft Windows You can open multiple windows in any browser, though the commands will be slightly different).

1 Click on the Internet Explorer File menu at the top of the browser This will display a list of File commands like 'New', 'Open', etc.

2 Highlight the "New" command by dragging your mouse to it This will reveal another set of commands to its right ('Window', 'Message', 'Post', etc).

3 Drag the mouse to the "Window" command and click on it.

4 You're done This will open an Internet Browser window containing exactly the same content as the first window you started with.

You can move, resize or otherwise use either of these two browser windows as you wish Once cloned, they behave entirely independently of each other.
