Actually it's kind of scary but I think I know what you are meaning and trying to do. First you do need the check mark in the "reuse window when launching shortcut". The problem is, I'm pretty sure that the system notes which IE window was the first to launch and that is the browser window that will get re-used. So, make sure you reserve that activity for the FIRST browser window you open. Try to keep the browser windows that you don't want to change in the second, third, fourth, etc. instances of the browser. Personally, if you use multiple browser windows (as I do) I think you find it easier to control by leaving the "reuse" box unchecked and control your multiple browsers manually.

[Moderators note: Please be kind and trim your posts for excessive trailers/text ~ Thanks] Folks, I've tried that box checked and not checked over and over, but that isn't the problem. I want to be able to click on a favorites item in a pulldown folder list and have that link open in the window I'm currently using, and for IE not to go and open that link in some other already open, but not the current, window. Often I have one site open on the non-current window that I wish to keep right where it is, URL-wise, but IE decides to use that, or another window, instead of my current window to open the new link picked from the pulldown list in my current window. I am not trying to get it to open, or not, a brand new window, which is what it does if tools>internet options>Advanced>place a check in "reuse windows for launching shortcuts" is not checked. Kind of difficult to put into words.
