Opening journal articles in new window.

  1. Mar 10, 2012 #1

    Somewhat trivial question:
    When I open a pdf of a journal, it opens in a new window on the web browser (Opera). When I go to open a second article; sometimes when clicking on download pdf, sometimes when pressing "Go" in SFX Ex Libris, it replaces the other pdf. Sometimes I can overcome this by right-clicking on download pdf and clicking open in new window, I can't do this for "Go" on the Ex Libris screen. Anyone else encountered this. Does anyone know how to overcome this?

    Usually if you hold the shift key down when click it will open in a new window. I haven't used Opera in a while, but this seems to be a general rule for all browsers. Depending on particular setting, you should get either a new window or a new tab.
