Issue: PowerChute Network Shutdown help does not open correctly in IE11
 
Product Line: PowerChute Network Shutdown v4.2
 
Environment: Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11)
 
Cause: This issue occurs when the IE11 Internet Options > Security levels are set to a level above Medium. 

PowerChute Network Shutdown help topics may not open correctly in IE11. When you click on a help link, the help topic opens in a new browser tab. If you visit a subsequent page in PowerChute and click on another help link, a blank tab opens, but the help topic opens in the existing browser tab. You must manually close the blank tab opened by PowerChute to allow any subsequent help tabs to be opened.
