[Solved]Clicking on a link opens a "new" browser window.

  • I have Opera as my browser of choice so when I click on a link (in my email for instance) Opera opens to display it. If Opera has not yet been opened it does so now. Problem is if I already have an Opera window open, clicking on a link opens a new (second) Opera window. Another link-click opens a third and so on. How can I prevent this?

  • Version of Windows, and what mail program? For me in Windows 7 and using the old Opera Mail, it opens in the same window.

  • Not a windows user = using Linux Mint 17.3 Rosa and Claws Mail

  • I found the answer. I took a look at my email software Preferences and was able to fix the "External Programs" choice, making it "use system defaults when possible".
    Thank you for your help and directing my thoughts away from Opera and toward my email software.
