Try going to the link, holding down control, pressing enter with control held down, then releasing the control key. Then hit enter on the link again.


Tab to the link and hit enter. When nothing happens, press alt-n to look at the information bar on the top of the screen. There should be a few choices, including 'block content', and 'allow blocked content.' Choose 'allow' and press enter. You will be back at the link. Press enter again and it should work.

In Internet Explorer, go to tools, internet options, security, and check 'allow active content'.

good luck!

I am trying to help someone with his IE settings, and I cannot, for the life of me, figure out how to make this work.

Here's the situation. This person has his own web site. The site is put up by a web hoster and it's a good, accessible site. When he tries to access certain links on his site, the links will not open. They will, however, open on every other computer we've tried this on. The links he cannot access are links which open in a new window. I had him right click on the link and he didn't even get the same context menu I got. There were no items in his menu referring to opening the link in a new window or tab.

I have checked every browser setting I can think of and I can find nothing to change.

I would appreciate any input about this problem.

Thanks in advance.
