I always have more than one computer window open when I'm online. I find it easier to view the things I want to see online if I have several windows open at once. I currently have 6 open as I type this. :P However my husband likes to only have one window up at a time whenever he is online. So, how many PC windows do you have open at one time? Please share your thoughts.

Nope, I don't listen to music while surfing the net. I'm used to keeping my speakers off. I just like it better that way!

As many as I can I dont know what the effect is but I love opening lots of windows at a time, so while I am waiting for other windows to open I can do something with the other window. I open different websites at a time so I wont get bored and stuck with one window. I prefer this way.

The effects is it causes your computer to slow down. The more the windows open the lesser the computer is efficient. I think it has something to do with the computer memory. The more is open, the more the memory is used up. So for me, I try to minimize the number of windows open. Only those I need to use for that time. Around 3-4 tabs for Mozilla Firefox at a time. =)

I have tabbed browsing and right now there are five tabs open at the same time. It might go to ten. I do not like to as I want to see all open on the same page and with more then ten, I have to go forward or backward.

I prefer music on while working on computer. It helps me to be more creative and active. So, I have atleast 3 application open on my desktop. Firefox, media player and word document. I open atleast 5 tabs on firefox in one window. It helps to utilize time while my other response is under process.

I only open one window. Mozilla Firefox. Then I open a lot of tabs. *LOL* Whenever I use myLot I open around 3 tabs. One for my email, so that I'd know if someone replied to my post. Then another one for myLot where I reply to those replied posts. and Last for myLot to reply to other topics. Cool hey? But if I'm working, then I'd say I need to open a lot more.

I too have many open- that way I can search for the next discussion that I am going to respond to while the other page is loading- It saves time and it makes it so I can do more online with the time I have- I also love to multitask- Type A personality-

I only ever have one browser window open at once. But that's because my browser is Mozilla Firefox, and it is AWESOME! Instead of cluttering up the taskbar, I have multiple tabs with various pages. Firefox is also much more secure, safer, and blocks out 95% of self-installing adware. I haven't used Internet Explorer in over two years, and I never will use it again. 'Shady

I only have one window open usually but I use firefox and usually have at least 5 tabs open at once! Mozilla firefox is far easier to use and organise and I don't know what I did without it! xxx

It all depends. I do my other things before Mylotting. They remain open so that I can deal with things as they come in if need be. I answered discussions straight from email so that makes taking care of business easy for me. Don't understand all the effort of having different screens open for the same site. Anyway, whatever works is good I guess. Currently I have 4 open.

Well I used to keep multiple windows open (still do) but especially after web browsers created the tab feature, the number of windows open has minimized significantly. It would be really cool to have the tab feature for windows other than web browsers.

I always have at least 3 open, depending on what I am doing...I could have more but being on dial up it is slow already so it just slows it down even more.
