Chapter 3. Internet Annoyances > GOOGLE ANNOYANCES

GOOGLE ANNOYANCES

GET BACK WHERE YOU STARTED WITH GOOGLE

The Annoyance:

When I do a Google search and click a result, it generally leads me to another page, then another, and so on. A half hour later I'm done and want to go back to my original search page and start over, but it's nowhere to be found. (OK, I can find it in my Internet Explorer History, but who needs that hassle?)

The Fix:

There's a better way to do this, and it's easy to set up. First, go to http://www.google.com. To the right of the search field, click the Preferences link. Scroll down to the very bottom of the Google Preferences page and check "Open search results in a new browser window." Click the Save Preferences and OK buttons to return to the Google home page. Now when you click one of Google's hits, it will launch a new browser window, leaving the original search results untouched.
