    Right-click the Internet Explorer icon. Click the "Internet Explorer" menu item that's almost at the bottom. Enjoy as many windows as you wish. :)

    This was one of my main problems with Vista and its getting worse with Windows 7.

    If you know what your doing in Win2K/Win2K3/XP you can achive anything in a few mouse clicks.
    But in both Vista and now Windows 7 there aren't any of the shortcuts, you either have to go the new (painfully) long way thats been designed to help noobies. :(

    Or go all the back to the Command Line :eek:

    :) Any specific problems that you have? Maybe there's a solution that you're not aware of (YET!)!

    Hmm... How about removing a 'Bad GFX Driver' without having to let Windows do a complete system check to find out whats wrong and then reboot the PC twice, whether to its found a solution or not.

    It used to be 11 clicks and 1 reboot. :)
