On my taskbar- where the 'E' for Internet Explorer has every single site I have gone to listed. I guess every place I surf is opening a new window?
How do I stop this? I usually have two windows open- so I can switch back and forth.

On my IE10 it would be click the gear & Internet Options, then click the button labeled TABS. Look there.

Yes you definitely want to be opening up sites in new tabs Not in new windows. Each time you open it up in a window that is another instance of IE running which can end up slowing you down considerably. It just isn't a good practice. Close out of all of them and open only one instance of IE then click on the tabs bar to open a new page and set up your preferences to open new links in tabs.

OK, thank you. I hope that is the end! Sometimes there would be 20+ tabs before I realized it.
Thanks again.
