Not sure if this belongs here, we are upgrading from ie6 to ie8.. Our application(applet) currently has an export to excel function that will open a blank browser and let you save/open a file..

Now, I am noticing in ie8, this second browser opens minimized, so the user's might miss it. This isn't the casein ie6. It also isn't the case on some of the other ie8 machines, which leads me to believe it is a setting in ie8.

Not sure if I am asking this in the right place but maybe someone knows about this and can help...

Thanks!!

That's probably due to an IE 'quirk' which is also most likely not specific to your applet, but applies to all links that open new windows.
I believe resetting the browser settings should fix it. If it doesn't Google the problem and you should find a fix, as it's a pretty common issue.
