Steps to reproduce

When I go to my junk mail site (AOL) (let’s call that window 1), it opens a separate window to read mail (window 2), if I click on a link in window 2, yet ANOTHER window opens (window 3). So I end up with THREE windows open.

In other browsers, the new window will just open a new tab in window 1.

    • Hello,

      Thank you for providing this information about the issue. After thorough testing, we are unable to reproduce this problem in Edge with the information at hand. It could be a design feature specific to the site which is not working correctly and we need to investigate. We may need access to the junk mail or have you forward us a copy of the email to test.

      As a workaround, please try holding down the Ctrl key when you click the mail link to see if that gives the result you want.

      Best Wishes,
      The MS Edge Team
