Jill can't you change it in the mouse utilities software, I have my mouse to do that.
It just made one of those little scrolly circle arrows when I clicked the scroll wheel on the link.
Are you a Google Analytics enthusiast?

I normally set up off-site links to open in a new window, but I do (I think) put a note on the page that says that the links will do that.

You can of course re-assign them.

I know the feeing. Normally I just download the latest versions from the manufacturer's websites. Driver CD's are almost always out of date when you get them
Probably need the mouse software that I assume came with it. God knows where that might be....

- Preference: as pointed out in this thread - those who want to open in new window do so of ther own accord. The clearly implied conclusion here is that there are and there will be people who want to open certain links in a new window.
- Predictability: note how a PDF link should be shown as such? It sucks having Adobe pop up in your face with its two-and-a-half-years of start up time (on a 1.7 GHz, 512 MB machine) without warning. It also sucks to wait for another IE (we're talking majority of users here) to load up. One thing I like from http://apologeticsin...o.html#colorkey is that it has this little icon to warn you that a link is offsite and/or in a popup. *Best* would be if right there and then on the link you can make decide what to do. Possible tip: I've used overlib to do just that on a b2 blog hacks site. Click a link (normal href, SE friendly) and the onclick brings up an overlib window with two buttons: 'open in this window' and 'open in a new window'
- Usability: at times we all have to realize how much more cmputer and internet information we take for granted than the next Joe Blow. You still receive those "Forward this to 100 people because MS is tracking it!" emails from family and friends not because they're annoying but because they actually think it's true... (amazing, isn't it!). So yes, 'they' will get confused with another window open and not realize which window is what. YOUR window has to be full screen, the popup window has to be centered and much smaller so that your site 'shines through' from the sides.
- Windows XP: think they get back? Your fear is titled "Group similar taskbar buttons" - and we've all used it on pop-up ridden sites to simply say "Close All". So watch out.
My Take / My Site
To keep visitors on my site (yes, I admit, I attempt to get that one extra click) I prefer the way about.com does it in a link like this to highrankings.com: a top frame.
I don't like sites that open links in new windows justlike that. If I notice it happens I will right-click, copy shortcut and paste the damned URL instead.
