    Open a website (NOT a folder) in its own window automatically.


    Example :
    I have Tenforums.com opened.
    Now I access TechNet forum.
    I would like to have TechNet opened in its own window. I know I can always drag it out from the tab and make it its own window. I just want it done automatically.

    Thank you.

    Although this isn't a direct answer to the question you asked, what you can do (if you're using a keyboard and mouse) is use shortcut keys with Edge and Internet Explorer.

    Shift + left mouse click a link - will open the link in a new window

    CTRL + left mouse click a link - will open the link in a new tab (clicking the link with the middle mouse button will do the same)

    Ok.
    Looking for an "automatic" setting.
    Like I said, I can always "drag" it out and make itself a window.

    Thank you.

    Just to clarify, in your original example how are you opening TechNet? From a link or desktop shortcut?

    I'm not sure what browser you're using, however in Internet Explorer you can set it to open desktop shortcuts (all HTTP links) in a new window everytime by going to:

    Internet Explorer Options (cog symbol in top right of browser) > Internet Options > Tabs > Open Links From Other Programs in > A New Window
