Popup in same window with IE

I am capturing web pages with a vb programme using an IE control. Some of the sites pop up a window externally to my vb executable so I can't then capture them. Is there any way I can stop this and make clicked links always open in the same window?
I think you can do this in Firefox but can't find how to do it in IE.


RE: Popup in same window with IE


Start by going to the dropdown menu 'Tools' > 'Internet Options' > 'General' > 'Tabs' > 'Settings' > 'Tabbed Browsing Settings'

Under the item: "When a pop-up is encountered", select the "Always open pop-up in a new tab" option.

Close by selecting OKs, close and restart browser.
