    Hello,

    I want to write a PowerShell script to open a new browser window? I can open new pages but if a browser is open it just adds a new tab. I need a new window.

    For the default browser, I using:

    start http://www.cnn.com

    and for non default browser I am using:

    Start-Process -FilePath Chrome -ArgumentList www.cnn.com, www.bbc.com

    But again, if there is a window open they just open in tabs.

    thank you

    That's actually not a Powershell question 😉

    Chrome Open New Window Command Line

    Firefox New Window Command Line

      Sorry. To clarify. How do I do it in a PowerShell script?

      hmmmm ... obviously you already know how to start a process in Powershell with options. You showed this in the second code snippet in your initial post. Now you have to manage the challenge to ad a further switch to your argument list. Sometimes it's helpfull just to play a little bit around and see what's happening.

      Try this:

      Start-Process -FilePath Chrome -ArgumentList '--new-window www.cnn.com, www.bbc.com'
