Q: "Open in New Window' Command Does Not Work in Internet Explorer"

"Open in New Window' Command Does Not Work in Internet Explorer"


? When you right-click a Web address on a Web page, and then click
Open in New Window, the Web page may not open in a new window.


Reason:
? Some Internet Explorer registry information is missing or damaged.


To resolve this issue:


1. Click Start, and then click Run.
2. In the Open box, type regsvr32 actxprxy.dll.
3. Click OK, and then click OK again when you receive the following
message: DllRegisterServer in actxprxy.dll succeeded.
4. Click Start, and then click Run.
5. In the Open box, type regsvr32 shdocvw.dll.
6. Click OK, and then click OK again when you receive the following
message:
DllRegisterServer in shdocvw.dll succeeded.
7. Restart your computer.


This will take care of the problem,

Preferred Solution: "Open in New Window' Command Does Not Work in Internet Explorer"

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have searched to see if this was asked before without any success. Maybe someone has run into this problem before.
When I open "my computer" or "control panel" after I close it...it automatically goes into Internet Explorer as a blank page. Most of the time, when I close the IE blank page...it stops responding and I have the control-alt-delete to "end the program"
Thanks in advance for any help.

A:"Open in New Window" command doesn't work

Sounds like a malware hijacking. That seems to cause a lot of eratic action in IE some times. Try running HiJackThis and see what is controling IE. Run SpyBot S&D and Ad-Aware to get rid of Malware. Also run a good virus scan. If you are using Norton AV try using Avast, it seems to catch a few more than NortonsAV in my experience. You will need to make sure that all of Nortons/Symantec Antivirus is removed before you run Avast.

A:No REG Command in "Open elevated command window here" DOS Box

Hello Fred, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Is this the tutorial you used below to add "Open elevated command window here"? Open Command Window Here as Administrator
The REG /? command works for me using this when I right clicked on C:\Users and Open elevated command window here.
Do you have your UAC notification settings set to at least the default or top level? Normally when you use "Open elevated command window here", you will get a UAC prompt to approve before the elevated CMD window opens. If you do not get a UAC prompt, then this may be why you are having this issue.

Hope this helps for now,
Shawn

So I started my computer, about 5 minutes later, a command window opened, then closed by itself.

I didn't do anything at the time, it just came out of no where, I was wondering if anyone knows what can cause this?

Just in case, I scanned for Rootkits using F-secure Blacklight(nothing detected), currently running every other scanning program I have but anyone know what can cause the command window to open then close out of no where?

I right click an open window and "close - -" appears, as in "XP." However, tapping the "C" key doesn't work. Using other keys does work; eg, "D" for delete and "Y" for yes. Why no response when using "C" for close? This is a bad change from "XP."

I have noted that a letter in the right click menu is not underlined in "7" as in "XP." However, using the "XP" keys still works, except for 'close.'

Greetings all. How do I add the keyboard shortcut command "ctrl+F" to the Internet Explorer context menu? I know where I need to go in the registry to add an item to the context menu of Internet Explorer, but I don't know how to add a keyboard shortcut.

A:Adding "ctrl+F" command to Internet Explorer context menu

I am not sure I understand. Ctrl+F activates the "Find on this page" search box in Internet Explorer (IE) and funcions when you are working in the IE window, there is no setting up required for this.

A right click on the IE icon for a "Find on this page" in the context menu will not be very useful since IE does not yet know what page you intend to look at. If you just want a search function for IE pages you can use the search box on the taskbar.

This problem just started a couple days ago, with no changes to any of my PCs settings or new downloads in a couple weeks.

When I have a Windows Explorer window open in the background, hitting the "t" key in Firefox (and IE for that matter) switches to the Explorer window automatically. I can get around it by shift+t, giving me a capital T and keeping me in my browser window. Alternatively, I can turn caps lock and shift+T to get a lowercase t and remain in the browser.

While in a Windows Explorer window, if I try to rename a file using the letter t, nothing will happen when I hit the key unless I use one of the workarounds above.

Any idea on what could be causing this and/or how to resolve the problem?

Thanks,
Chad

In the IE windows that are already open, when I click on a link that opens a new window on it's on...it works.

The only problem is when I try to manually open a new one myself. So, right now, I'm rather afraid to close all of the IE windows currently open and to restart my computer.

A:XP "My Computer" and "Explorer" taking ages to open

assuming you ran spyware and adaware cleanups, i would suggest reinstalling windows..... Windows (every version) will eventually slow down and not respond, act very unstable, not cooperate, and eventually it will commit suicide and give you major blue screens. then the computer has problems booting... a reinstall (a fresh reinstall preferebly) would probably fix it.....

could you post your system specs? that may help a little bit...

A:"My Computer" command icon brings up search window

Instead of a folder opening in Windows Explorer when it is double-clicked, the Windows Search dialog opens

How do I set the default action on folders to open the folder instead of running Windows Search?


Sometimes after adding the right click with the Explorer, the default setting for opening a folder is changed.
To correct this:

Start Regedit
Go to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT \ Directory \ shell
Edit the default value to be explorer or none

You can download a reg file to do this automatically at:

When I try to use the Run command module to run something like ipconfig, the little black window (go ahead and laugh... no idea what to call it) opens as expected, and i can catch a quick glimpse of the expected text. Then it vanishes before I can actually read anything. It can't be open for more than 1 second.

I'm scanning for viruses now.

How can I make it such that in Search Results, when I open a folder in a new window (by right-clicking a file), I will be directed to a window with the "full path" displayed in the address bar, instead of Search Results\"Path" or Search Results>"Path"?
Edit: "Right-click -> open file location" will open the file location and have the full address displayed. But that doesn't solve the problem if I have more than one result that I need to go to and check.

A:Open a new window with "full path" instead of Search Results\"Path"

See if this works, from the control panel, click on Folder options > View tab > check the box that says "Display the full path in the title bar" (classic theme only)

Hi,

When our website users click on an html attachment embedded on a web-page in IE9, the download manager will not display the "Open" option. It will only display "Save" and "Cancel" which our users don't like, having to save the
html document in a folder to open it. Whereas, when downloading attachments like pdf, word etc. all three options are displayed. 

Is there any setting to tweak , which will display all the 3 options for HTML attachments as well?

A:IE9 download manager will not display "Open" option (only "Save" and "Cancel" is displayed) for downloading HTML documents.

Hi,
As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading. 
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?
Thanks!

Installed Publisher 2003 on new windows 7 computer and noticed that the "fill" command would only fill in white. Went to the "Paint" program that came installed on the computer and the same thing was true. Should I upgrade to Publisher 2007? If "Paint" doesn't work, why would an upgrade to Publisher 2007 work?

Msconfig is not a feature on the Win2k systems. You can however use the Win XP version on a Win2k machine as they are compatible.

In Windows 7, whenever I try to select "Open file location" from the right click menu of a shortcut, instead of opening the folder in explorer, it opens a command prompt window with the directory set to file location instead. The same thing happens when I select "Show in Windows Explorer" in iTunes.

How do I fix this?

Hi dear friends.

I am facing a terrible problem on my pc.

The "open with" command disappeared completely from my file context menu.

The fact is that I cannot have alternate choices of opening media files or any files, cause the command is not there!

So please, if anyone knows, tell me the default command line to edit on my registry...or otherwise please provide me the appropriate solution.

My OS is Vista Home Premium 32 bit.

Any other questions are welcomed!

Thanks in advance.

Hey guys,

I know there's a way to add a "Open command window here" when you click ON a folder... but what I'm curious about is if there's a way to do that if you're IN a folder. It never made sense to me, if I want to run a command-line utility like ffmpeg on a file, to have to go up a folder, click that option, then enter the folder again.

Does anybody know if there can be an option like this? To clarify:
This is what I'm referring to. I know MS Office Groove added an option there, so theoretically couldn't there also be one for command prompt? I know if you right-click on the desktop while holding Shift, the option shows up, but ONLY on the desktop.

Any answers would be appreciated.

A:Adding "Open Command Prompt" Option

Hotkeys

PromptHere

It doesn't use the context menu. It's a hotkey.
If you hit the hotkey while you are in a folder with nothing selected, it uses a macro to go up, get the current folder, then go back where you were and open a command prompt. It has to macro up to get the current folder using the clipboard.

Also unlike other Command Prompt Here type utilities, you can select several folders and hit the hotkey. A prompt will open with each as the current directory.
IOW, if you had 3 folders selected you'd get 3 command prompts.

It's free for you to use at your own risk.

Any ideas? This is still happening and I'm not sure how to fix it because what else can I do besides do an "open with"? It's like even though I tell it to "open with" Firefox.exe, it decides to use WindowsPhotoViewer.exe instead. That makes no sense to me and I don't understand why it would use a different program other than the one I specifically tell it to use.

I've considered deleting WindowsPhotoViewer and then trying to do "open with" Firefox to see what it does when the program it wants to use doesn't exist anymore (probably give an error message), but I don't want to delete Windows Photo Viewer because I do want to use it in some cases.

Hi KronKyrios, welcome to 7F!

I did find some very old information that may shed some light:

"Launch Browser Windows in a Separate Process" Setting Is Not Available in Internet Explorer 5.01 or Internet Explorer 5.5

You can go into Services and check:
Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS)
Network Connections
Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
Windows Management Instrumentation

R-click on each one, then Properties, then the Dependencies Tab.
You would have to cross check each one that is listed.

I am using Windows 7 on my laptop and I have question about when to use "Home", "Work" and "Public" profile.

If I am logging in without setting password, and I am logging in network with "Public" profile, then will any other user, who can see my computer, be able to enter my computer and check the contents on my computer ?

I am connecting to a network and there are 6 other users connected to this network. In the set network location window, if I select the netwoek as "Home", does it mean that other 6 users will not be able to see my computer on network and if I use "Public", then all other six users will be able to see my computer on network ?

Thanks

Hi there I have a problem running Patran in Windows the program seems to run fine and I am able to open data bases and work on them The problem comes in when I want to either save the database open a new database or just open a current database For each of these functions a new smaller window pops up so I can navigate to the correct file or path to click on it or whatever Initially the window opens as I would expect but as soon as I move the mouse or try to use the keyboard to navigate the window goes blank and I can do nothing with it Strangely using the compatibility setting to open the program in a x display they do seem to work fine but because of the small resolution I cannot actually see the part of the window where the files are - so that also doesn't help me It seems as though there is something between Patran and Windows that one correctly window display open" doesn't "Flie of them don't like but it "Flie open" window doesn't display correctly baffles me that everything "Flie open" window doesn't display correctly else works fine If any one else has had "Flie open" window doesn't display correctly the same problem maybe with a different program even let me know what you did to resolve it Otherwise any advise would be useful Thanks Alan

A:"Flie open" window doesn't display correctly

Welcome!

First, how long has this been going on? Did it start right from the time you installed it?

You may try uninstalling and then reinstalling Patran. If that does not help, try running it in compatibility mode for Vista or XP.

right click any file u want to open with some specific program, select Open With > Choose program.

from the list, single click on the desired program, and DON'T forget to click (check) "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file" and click ok. Next time u double click this file, it should open it wih your previous (above) selected program.

Can't open any programs cuz this annoying window "Open with" pops up asking what application I want to open this file with? If I go browse and select the file (i.e. IE) then another window opens asking if I want to run, save or cancel. When I hit Run.... windows close and nothing happens. Pretty much dead in the water here. Tried recovery to an older config.... no help. It even happens on Safe Mode. Any help?

Hello Seahunt, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It sounds like your associations for these file extensions may have been messed up. Downloading and merging the .lnk (LNK) and .exe options in the tutorial below to restore their default associations and hopefully fix this for you.

Over the course of the last week, I have realized that when I am on youtube and I go to watch a video, sometimes a "Offer" tab will open in another tab on chrome. I have looked around at how to get rid of this but to no avail. Secondly, just today, I have realized that when I go on google chrome and search for something, a "Enhanced Results" section will be displayed just below the search bar and to be blunt, both of these are plain annoying and I would like to have these viruses removed.

I have read other threads where users have had slow response times on it opening but it won't open at all for me. Has anyone else had this issue? Also, does anyone know of a way to reinstall this or fix it some how??? Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forums

Try this method:

You can also try using command prompt

netsh wlan connect name=ABC

where ABC is the name of your network.

You may want to reinstall the operating system.

Backupthe files that are importantto you before you reinstall.

The "New" installation will overwrite the current one

If you do not format your hard drive before the reinstall the installation should not harm your files (That's why I suggest backingup your files) and will speed up the installation process.

Have a PC with Windows XP HE. In the corner of the desktop a "window" is embedded with IE operating within. There are sliders on the "window"...but no way to close it by right clicking....and there is no "X" available. The "window" can be sized with the mouse....and loads itself automatically after the desktop loads.

I've completely redone the desktop to no avail.

There is no indication on the launch bar that IE is running...but it is.

HELP!

Thanks in advance!

Hello,

When I try to download a file on a Web Page using IE, I have "save" and "cancel" buttons but no "open" button on the popup window. I guess this is linked to some IE security settings but which one?

Thanks

I'm using Internet Explorer 6.0 right now.
My problem is that I cannot open links in new windows when I right click on the link, and click the "Open Link in New Window" option. Sure, a new window comes up but the area in which the page is suppose to load in seems to be blank and frozen. The address bar does not contain the address for the page.

This problem just suddenly started happening out of the blue, and the only way for me to actually get it to load is click stop then refresh.

hey guys, just today, I noticed that whenever i double click a folder, it opens in a new window.  I went to folder properties, and made sure I checked "Open each folder in the same window," and its checked.  I tried switching it on, then off, then restoring all defaults in both those settings and the view settings, and I've tried restarting the computer, even using a system restore point.  No Matter what, whenever I double click a window, it opens in a new window, but if I use the navigation pane, or if I highlight a window and click the open button at the top left, it opens in the same window.  This is very very very annoying, because just navigating my harddrive, I might end up with 20 windows open to reach just 1 file. Does anyone know what's wrong?  or how I can fix this? 

A:"Open each folder in the same window" not working

Hi!I'm not sure if this will help, but you can try:

1.Click Start, and then type cmd in the Start Search box.
2. Right-click cmd in the Programs list, and then click Run as administrator.
3.If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password or click Continue
4.At the command prompt, type the following line, and then press ENTER: sfc /scannow
When the scan is complete, test to see whether the issue that you are experiencing is resolved.

When I print to Paperport, normally it opens a "save as" window and I click the folder I want to save it as. In Windows 7, the save as comes as a flashing button on the bottom left taskbar, and I have to click it to open. How do I get it to open a "save as" without it going to a flashing button in the task bar??

Any ideas or help? Thank you!

Hi all,

If I click "file/open" when using the software I have at work, in the window that opens I often have to end up navigating through a complex folder structure to get to the file I want to open.

Is there a way of adding shortcuts on the bar on the left of the panal that comes up when I click open(which currently has these shortcuts):

"recent places", "desktop", "libraries", "computer" and "network"

Hope this makes sense.

Thanks alot.

Talk about a mystery, one day it's right, the next....no "with" next to the open.
When I right click, I have two Open commands. One is the open with, but the word "with" is not there.
Any suggestions on how to correct this? I wonder if it is a registry fix.

Thanks
Max

For some reason my desktop icons do not work when i click on them. When i double click or right click and hit open, a window pops up that has "Open with" options but none of them work. I noticed a couple other forum posts similar but none of the attachments or links in those posts are still active.

Please help. I am right pickled.

Oh I should mention that this happened a long time ago so the F8 restarts to a point in time don't work. Also I clearly learning my lesson as to backing up everything so that I can restart from a back up time.

The subject message pops up any time I attempt to open my IE8 browser using Windows XP and set to my home page "ATT.Yahoo". When I click "OK" in the message, IE closes and tries to recover, but with the same results each time. I know
there is a method to reset IE9, but can't tell if it also pertains to IE8 since it can't be opened.

Hi,
the first step in troubleshooting IE issues is to test in noAddons Mode.
toolbars.google.com - download and install the latest IE compatible version of the Google Toolbar.
for consumer help with IE select the Help>Online Support menu from IE and follow the prompts for your windows and IE versions. thx.Rob^_^

My wife is a creature of habit and when something changes on her computer, I'm the first to no about it.
Yesterday when she inserted a SD card into the usb media reader, instead of the "open with" dialogue popping up, it's the media drive window that opens. There's no such thing as re-training and life is going to be miserable if I can't get it working like it did.

Help.....

A:How to restore "Open with" window

This should work..

Go here:
Troubleshooting Windows XP, Tweaks and Fixes for Windows XP

On line 241, you'll find "Restore choose program - Open With", click to download the .reg file. Then double click on it and it should ask you to import it to the registry, choose yes. Then reboot the computer and see if it fixed the issue.

Hey guys usually I post on Seven Forums but given I have a Vista-specific problem I figured I would post it here I have an issue in Vista where shortly after a fresh install "Open in new window" problem of Vista Business x every time I open a folder it would open in its own window I checked folder options it's set to open in the same window I read "Open in new window" problem the tutorial on this very site and checked all my settings Everything right down to the registry entries are as they SHOULD be for opening a folder in the same window but for whatever reason they keep opening in their own windows It's as if Windows itself decided to change how it behaves I admit I vLite'd my Vista Business disc originally so I thought "Open in new window" problem I may have borked the OS by removing something I shouldn't have but then I tried using the untouched disc and the issue is still there Any insight would be appreciated cuz I'm at a loss

A:"Open in new window" problem

Check out the following tutorial to see if it helps. You may need to use Method 3 if you've already tried the others, but hopefully one of them will help: Open a Folder in the Same or Separate New Window. Remember, some of the steps are subtle, so read them carefully and follow them to the letter.

I hope this helps.

Good luck!

Hi to everyone!

I have this problem very long time ago untill now.

When I press "del" key a help window will open, also some characters have accompanied by other letters. for example when I press "s" it gives me "s1" others are "w" = w7, and the worst is when I press "2" the system will force to shutdown.

I have used diff. anti virus like mcaffee, norton and pccillin with updated dat files. I also update my system to the latest service pack after I reformat it to make sure I got a very fresh and secured system, but it doesn't protect me.

My system:
OS: Win XP
Service Pack 2
Pentium IV 2.4g

Any help will be highly appreciated! please! it really ruin my time. and I'm afraid that someday all of my files will turned to .exe or unusable.

Please help.
