Default Really stupid question. Really, really stupid.

I just got a new computer with Windows XP (I used to have Win 98) and in IE6, I can't open multiple browser windows at once. I know usually you do File.New.Window or Ctrl+N but when I do that it just closes the current window and opens a new one. I know it sounds like it'd be really simple to fix, but I can't figure it out. Any help? Thanks!

Erm.. you mean doing Shift+ctrl+n? Or holding down shift while you do file.new window? Neither of them seems to work...

Resetting IE settings didn't work either.

Shan, I can but it closes the current window and opens a new one instead.
