WWW button nobbled (sometimes)

My keyboard has a Web button on it, which as you’d expect opens up my web browser.

Like all right-minded people, I have this set up in Windows’ “Set program access and defaults” screen to go to Firefox.

But if I press the button when a Windows Explorer window is open (eg browsing a directory) it goes to IE in that window, instead. Hmmm.

    Try, in IE, going to Tools > Internet Options, |Advanced| and uncheck “Reuse Windows for launching shortcuts”. See if that makes a difference.

    I’m afraid I haven’t a “WWW” button on my keyboard, so I haven’t tested if this makes a difference.
