Hyperlinks suddenly open new windows

Every link on my index page suddenly opens pages in a new window.  The correct page is opened, but it is in a new window.  Is there a page property I'm missing.  The hyperlinks never did this before.  I think I was working with a shared border when the change occurred.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

RE: Hyperlinks suddenly open new windows

This something that's really easy to fix.

Select the Hyperlink.  Right click for the shortcut menu and choose Edit Hyperlink.

At the bottom of the dialog box, look for something called Target Frame and click the button.  It'll give you a bunch of choices.  Choose Same Frame.

If you're using frames, you especially want to make sure you adjust this option.  If you have a link to another web site, it could end up being displayed within your frames.
