Banner with Browsers

Internet Explorer 7 and later versions have the ability to open multiple browser sessions in tabs rather than in separate windows. If Banner is open in one of those tabs and you close IE, you will lose your Banner session. How do you avoid that? You have two options:

  • The best solution is to retrain yourself to close tabs rather than Internet Explorer itself. To do so, click the x in the upper right hand of that particular tab.
  • Alternatively, you can change your IE settings to allow each new browser session to open in a new window. To do this, open IE and go to Tools > Internet Options > General > Tab Settings, and check off the box that says Open links from other programs in:  A new window.
