Turn off Tabbed Browsing in Internet Explorer

John from LA wrote in asking:

Is there a way to turn off tabbed browsing? Every time I close a Tab I have to reload the page.

Sure, John – if you’re using Internet Explorer, then yes, there is a way!

Click on the gear in the upper right-hand corner and select Internet Options.

Make sure you’re on the General tab, and next to the Tabs field, click Settings.

Now, just un-check Enable tabbed browsing and click OK at the bottom.

You’re all set – no more tabbed browsing in IE. You can always re-follow these steps and put a check back in if you want to restore this function.
