IE8 Avoid sharing sessions

IE8 comes with a feature where the sessions are merged between new browser windows. And only way to have a new session is to use File > New Session

You can avoid the same by setting -nomerge to the IE target:

Go to Start > All Programs

Right Click on Internet Explorer

Click Properties

And at the end of the target add -nomerge after a space and apply ("C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" -nomerge)

Right click on Internet Explorer again and create desktop shortcut using send to

The new IE shortcut won't share sessions between the new browser instance.
