The child windows are opened from a menu of buttons inside the opener. Each child window must remain open for the user to see and compare, but the child windows overwrite the previously opened child window. How do I keep these multiple windows from overwritting each other?

Are you talking about HTML pages? Some context would probably help.

Sounds like something which would fit our GUI forum better.
Moving thread.

The context is an HTML form created from CGIBASIC (by Dan Bailey) on a Windows XP. Each button is called SELECTION with type SUBMIT. Any button can submit the form. In a validate paragraph, I use SHELL statements to START executables as well as other HTML forms, depending on which button submitted the form. I have used Javascript to open windows from these buttons (TYPE=BUTTON/onClick, etc.), but using Javascript does not prevent the child windows from being overwritten, as I thought it might.

Thanks. Dissimulation is habit for me when using the Internet, for safety's sake.

Ah, okay, it is HTML then. Let's move it back to the HTML forum...

... and here we are. Now, does your Javascript code assign different window names to each window you want to keep open?

Paul--actually I do not give unique names to each window. Eric--the article looks promising. Will get back to you.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
