  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  10. 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.

  12. 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…

  13. Navigation and new tab

    We should have the possibility to choose easily if an link in the lefthand menu or the hub's menu should open in a new tab or not. There 's no option about this nor in the modern settings neither in the hub settings.

  14. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. Allow users to open items in another tab by using “Link to document” content type

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    コンテンツ タイプの "ドキュメントへのリンク" 機能で別タブで開けるように設定を行いたい。

    Allow users to open items in another tab by using “Link to document” content type


    ■Description(内容):
    コンテンツ タイプを有効化して "ドキュメントへのリンク" 機能利用時に別タブで開く設定項目がない。
    "ドキュメントへのリンク" 機能の設定時に、別タブで開けるように設定できるよう機能の拡充を要望します。

    When enabling a content type to use “Link to document” feature, we don’t see the option to open items with another tab.
    For improvement of usability, add the ability to open items in another tab when the “Link to document” is set.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  19. Quick Links on Modern Pages allow open link within window

    Can Microsoft make the "Quick Link" filmstrip programmable to choose if links be open in Window, New Tab or New Window?

    It would be nice to have this because some users complain that the Hero Links are to image heavy.
