A simple problem that is hard to describe, but easy to fix.

Problem:

My Internet Explorer navigation windows open on top of each other!

The links don’t cascade correctly!

Why do my options open over each other?

I don’t know how to describe this problem!!

When logged into your workspace using Internet Explorer 9 or later, I sometimes encounter a problem where my second window link opens directly over my first. The hardest part of this problem is trying to find the correct term to use to describe this problem and search for a solution.  I did manage to find an answer though.

An example is shown here where my first link is selected by clicking on the File option.

This second screen shows that by moving down to the presented options the next set of choices opens directly above the first.
