  7. Open links to external sites in New Window/Tab

    Win 10, Office 365, SharePoint Site

    When on my SharePoint home page, I have a link to Google Scholar which opens in the same browser window or Site Tab in SharePoint. It would be helpful if this could open in a "NEW" window/Tab thereby avoiding the accidental closure of the whole Tab or having to step-back through all the intervening links used to get back to the original SharePoint Site page.

    Hope I explained the issue clearly. Thanks for your consideration.

  9. Make the hyper link open with another tab in the browser

    The hyper link in a list web part on the site home page would not be opened with another tab if it’s the URL of SPO site and inserted in the Hyperlink column of the list. It would be great the link could open with another tab page in a browser.

  10. How to change link of "Open in SharePoint" of file tab?

    How to change link of "Open in SharePoint" of file tab, if I want to link other SharePoint site?
    Is it possible to change link of default SharePoint site after I make new team site, not to add new tab ? I want to use already exiting SharePoint site as default SharePoint site, but the site owner is not me. If I create option "create a team from an existing Office 365 group", it's only allow my SharePoint site.

  11. Make opening Quick Links in the same tab, a new tab, or a new window a configurable option.

    Links are currently governed by default behavior. If it's a link within the current site, it should open in the same tab; if it's a link outside the current site, it should open in a new tab. But it is known that these default behaviors DO NOT WORK anyway. And it's really easy to make this a configurable option. So just add it in. It was really amateurish that it wasn't included from the beginning.

  12. Open Links In New Tab/Window

    Throughout the Communication Site experience there is missed opportunity to allow content owners to open links in new tabs/windows. The navigation, hero image, quicklinks, etc. Several of these areas might be referencing external sites or other areas of Office 365 that should be opened in new window so folks do not lose their place.

  13. Stop opening links in new tab in modern pages

    Please stop opening links in a new tab by default in modern pages.

    It is against standard web behaviour (https://www.w3.org/TR/2012/NOTE-WCAG20-TECHS-20120103/G200), and is confusing to users when they end up with 10+ tabs open when navigating even the simplest site.

    Make it optional by all means, it makes sense in a number of cases, just please not by default.

    In modern pages, we open links within SharePoint in the same tab by default, and external links in a new tab. In the text web part, users can specify to open links in a new tab, but that isn’t the default behavior. Similarly, for navigation links, they follow the same rule (within SharePoint, same tab, external to SharePoint in a new tab). This is true of the modern web parts that support linking as well (hero, quick links, images, etc.) This is the pattern we’ve adopted for consistency.

    After reviewing other areas of modern sites, like the site pages library, document libraries, lists, site contents, etc. we did find some different opening behaviors which we’ll review and resolve.

    Can you help us understand if this pattern isn’t meeting your expectation, if we have some inconsistencies within modern pages we’ve missed, or if it’s the other areas of modern sites where…

  14. Add a feature to Quick Links which enables to always open its page in another tab

    It would be great that Quick Links in Modern sites always opens its page in another tab.

  16. Hero Web Part - Please Allow right click to open link in new tab

    Please add the ability to either choose a setting to open links in new tabs, or allow users themselves to right click themselves to open hero web part links in new tabs.

    The current Hero Web Part does not allow me to right click on it to open the link in a new tab. Based on feedback from users, this is something that many would like the ability to do and it is frustrating them that doing this at present opens the image that is displayed in the hero web part.

    Please note, that the common suggestion to…

  17. BDMS Link

    USEFUL LINKS - Replace the zero usage "Travel" link with the highly used BDMS link, to open BDMS in another tab; more appropriate for the vast majority of users.

  18. Link open in current page/tab

    Make hyperlinks in Sharepoint open in the same tab, instead of every click opens in another page. At least make it an option somewhere for people who like everything open in a new tab.

  19. System & Tools Links

    Please set the "System & Tools" links to open as a new browser tab. There is no direct route to get back to SharePoint from most of these links.

  20. Quick Links WebPart

    The quick links web part only allows for links to open in a "New Tab" - Very Frustrating. We should have the option to stay within the same navigation.
