    How do you make it so if you click on a link it opens another Page?
    For some reason it's set to when I click a link I get taken away from original page.
    I have looked in my profile pages, Am I missing it in there?
    Thanks

    It isn't a forum setting. The best thing to do is to hold down the CTRL or SHIFT key (in Windows) when clicking on a link. This will open the link in a new tab or a new window.

    OK thanks.
    Main reason I thought it was a profile setting is that this is the only place it does it so it led me to believe it's not a PC setting
    Thanks

    I just right click and then click the "open link in a new page" option.

    It depends on what browser you're using. I know with Firefox I have to middle click a link here in BYC in order for it to open in another window. A link to anything outside opens properly (it's a setting under Tools/Options/New Pages should open in new tab). Only here in BYC does it click to the page instead of opening a new one.

    I have an (ancient) Dell- CTRL and N held simultaniously (sp?) works for me.
