selenium multiple window scrape. Python

Have been trying many things for the last few hours on this. However, strangely when selenium opens the new windows, it switches to it but instead of scraping data from the new page, if keeps closing the previous windows and scrapes data from them. Also, it keeps opening all the links instead of the next one. Sort of hit a wall with this one. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Answer

The problem part was this line actions.key_down(Keys.CONTROL).click(link).key_up(Keys.CONTROL).perform() I think this is not the right way to open a new tab if you are dealing with multiple links. I changed it to driver.execute_script('window.open(arguments[0]);', link) . I also let go of saving the links to a list. This works because there are only two windows open at a time. The home window and the link we clicked on. So, In entirety the code becomes
