IE 5.x Open new window, but minimised!

By jeremy.stanton ·
If I right click in IE on a URL and choose 'open in New window' or hold down the shift key and left button the new window opens right on top of whatever I am doing! I have a slow Internet connection.

Is there any way to make the window open, but minimised?

This is a design feature made into IE. It says that if a user want to open a new windows to a new URL then they would like to look at it, at the time of activation. If you just want to goto it then just left click, by doing this you stay in the samewindow, not a new one. Also with a slow connection you probably dont want to open any windows minimized or on top, because the more you have open the slower you system will be. I hope Im understanding correctly. Good Luck

Well im not sure if you figured it out.. but do you close your programs/browsers while they're minimised often?
Windows opens programs exactly the way they were left (size and location). So if you closed a program while it was minimised, it will open minimised.

You can't do what you want. By default it opens on top of the previous window so that you know something is going on.
