IE 10 "Open in new tab" not working properly


  • My IE browser was recently auto-updated to version 10.0.9200.16635 (found from Tools -> About Internet Explorer). However, I am now experiencing some strange behavior when I try to open a link in a new tab.

    When I right-click a link and select "Open in new tab" (or Ctrl+click the link), the link is instead opened in a new window, as if I selected "Open in new window". The "Open in new window" option works just fine though, and opens in a new window as expected.

    It is probably worth noting that I had no previous problems before the update on IE 9 (full version info unknown).

    Why would the "Open in new tab" option do the same thing as the "Open in new window" option? Is there some setting that I have overlooked?
