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.
Please, please, please give users the ability to choose whether or not to open links in a new tab in the Quick Links and Button web parts, as well as in navigation. Crazy that this was requested almost 4 years ago and there is still no way to control how links are opened, except by using a Text web part with hyperlinks.

The workaround is to use the TEXT webpart in SharePoint Modern.
You can add a hyperlink within the text webpart and in the Insert link dialog box there is a checkbox to "Open link in new tab"
"Quick links" will still only open in the same tab.
Please make this feature available....
we need this functionality urgently.

Hopefully this feature will also be available for buttons.
Such a basic thing, to give the designer control over whether or not they want a link to open in a new tab. Regardless if it is external or not! I can't imagine you don't have people on your team who haven't brought up the short-comings of SharePoint! It's time to listen, step it up, and really make this tool "modern".
What is happening, so many frustrated people looking for other platform options all because the function of opening hyperlinks and docs in new windows or in the MSapp isn't an option in SharePoint. Come on guys
Ohh my good years on this? this is a must, i have my classic SH opening every document in new tab.
There has to be a real option to open in new tab or new window.
Why is this not already implemented - doesn't seem to be that complicated...?

we have a lot of site admins in our organization asking for this
A year later, we are still waiting for this feature. Not sure why it is so complicated, as you can do this with HTML links.
Need this option please add soon. Thanks!

Add an option to open Quick links in a new tab

It has been almost a year since the ADMIN comment above. "IN THE PLANS"
Will this be implemented in the near future?
Mauro Romano commented
Yes, please!! It's a very simple and logical option.
Modern interface it's too much limited.
Is there any update on this feature being added? I would highly recommend all link features have the ability to be set to open in a new tab or not. I see it is possible for text links but not within any other feature (hero, quick links, etc.)
I would like to specify whether to have it open in a new tab or over the current tab. Thank you!
Please add this feature! Not all our staff know to right click and open in a new tab and they get quite lost when something does not open in a new tab.
