Open In New Window - Missing?
« on: October 14, 2021, 03:35:36 AM »
When in Secure Browser, and using the Open function, I can't find a way to Open In New Window.  All I can do is Open in a New Tab.  Is the New Window function missing?  Or, am I overlooking it somehow?  Thanks!

Hello vegasgeorge,

Would it be possible to provide a screen-shot?

The functionally should be available when you right click. Under the "Open link in a new tab" there should be "Open link into a new window" option.

How can I attach or insert an image in this reply without having to host the image on a server.  Can I attach or insert directly from my PC?

OK, thanks.  Here is a photo of my screen showing a right click on the DuckDuckGo icon on my Desktop.  Note that there is no "Open in New Window" option.  If my browser is already open, and I select this right click Open, then I get it in a new Tab.

Hello vegasgeorge,

Thank you for providing more information on this matter.

Due to the fact that you have a short cut made on your computer, this option is not available on any browser. by right clicking on the icon.

 If you would like to open it on a new window from the short cut directly , you will have to select that when the short cut is created.

Below are some images of how to create and select the option. Please reach out if you need anything further.
