I just got a new work computer and am being driven nuts by this odd quirk.
When I'm in Internet Explorer, I'm used to right-clicking on a link using my mouse's touchpad (to bring up the right-click context menu with one option being
Open in New Window) and then hitting the "N" key and it would open the link in a new window.
However, what's happening for me now is that I right-click and the menu appears and then I press the "N" key and it HIGHLIGHTS the menu command, but I have to press
Enter to make it execute - I know it's a small thing, but I'd really prefer not having to go through the 2-step process.
However, if I right-click and type "O" for
Open, it runs that command (actually runs it, rather than highlighting the entry in the context menu) just fine.
Any ideas about how I can change this functionality - Maybe it's a synaptics touchpad issue, maybe an internet explorer issue, maybe I just need to change something in the registry??
My system is Woindows 7 x64 running IE8.
