Disable Touch Feature - Drag opens new window

    We have a fullscreen kiosk application running on a touchscreen computer that
    uses Windows 7 and IE8. Whenever a user clicks and drags a link even a few
    pixels, that link opens in a new tab. I'm sure this is a slick feature for
    those using the computer to browse, but it completely destroys the
    effectiveness of our application. Is there any way to disable this function?
    I searched through the Options and Control Panel and couldn't find a way to
    do it. We go live with this application in a couple of days.

    Thanks!

    Hi Rob,

    Thanks for your reply. I'll give the "kiosk" mode a shot, but we're
    currently using Javascript to do a full screen interface, per the vendor's
    request. Any way to disable this under a Javascript setup?
