Ability to open Quick Links items in new tab
I'd like the ability to specify whether items using the Quick Links app open in a new tab or not.
We are currently working on a plan to add this feature, but have no timeline to share at the moment.

Hey Microsoft, give priority to little changes like this one. It is a very annoying one and, as I saw in forums, it has been like this since two years ago.
This seems so basic ... how was it not included from the start?

Yes would like a checkbox option in the webpart properties to allow open in new tab or window.
Colleen O'Connell commented
Yes! This should definitely be an option.... I've been forced to avoid using this web part and just create my own header with links that actually open in a new window. Unfortunately, I don't get to make use of the helpful icons and options the quick links web part has.

It's kinda SCARY that this novel yet immensely useful feature has been open OVER TWO YEARS and SharePoint devs haven't even commented on it! OMG!

Same issue as this suggestion - which has more votes...
I also agree this would be very nice to have the option to open in new tab.

If you can add to this idea the fact that navigation should be able to be set to open in a new window or tab, that would be great since there are a couple of requests floating around that mention one facet or another of the ability to open something in a new window being missing. This is really a step backwards in my mind.

Yes, I completely agree - this feature existed and worked great in previous Software. Why inthe world would it not be carried forward??
Why does Microsoft downgrade functionalities that are useful and were available in SharePoint 2007/2010?

just to echo existing sentiments, the ability to choose to open in a new tab (e.g. to a pdf or external web form) vs choose to stay on the same tab would make quicklinks much more functional.
it looks like there are a number of other suggestions with a similar request, can they be merged to increase awreness of this request?
Please allow us to manage mega menu, so that we can select if to enable link/page to open in a new tab or not (megga menu and quick links

This is a great suggestion - our quick links go offsite to other pages and this way the Intranet can stay in its own tab.
Currently, the links in a "quick links" webpart open only in the same windows. If we could choose whether a link opens in the same windows or in a new tab would greatly improve user's experience.
Please make it possible!
