AH..IE6 has changed my settings for viewing pics and I can't change it back. Help!

I have IE open all my .jpg images I have for the digi cam. Well I downloaded IE6 recently and it now opens all the images in different windows as 5.5 used to open them all in the same window. I've checked tons of settings but no luck.

Any ideas where to change this back to open images in same window.

thanks

try Tools | Internet Options | Advanced | reuse windows for launching shortcuts (make sure it's checked)

Why not use something other than IE for viewing pictures? IE is very limited IMO

Nope that was already checked.

I use IE just to view images. It loads faster than any program because it's technically already running in the background. I save Photoshop and PSP for editing.

Ok well I uninstalled IE6 and everything went back to normal. I don't know why IE6 opens up pics in different windows but oh well.

I had a butt load of problems when i installed IE6 last night. The critical update pkg for IE6 luckily corrected them eventually.

I didn't even think about the package but I really didn't notice any advantage to IE6 over 5.5. At least what I use it for
