    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…

    Thanks for making this suggestion. We don’t currently have plans to implement this, but would love to better understand the scenarios and need.

    Do you expect that people are deleting pages, or changing pages/content names frequently enough that they’re breaking other pages/content without knowing it?
    Is the site owner responsible for fixing that content or the authors/editors moving the content around?

    The broken-link checker, incoming links viewer and other sophisticated link tools are essential for large companies, where the documentation must be transparent, reliable and innovative. Recently, I defined a new way to document corporate solutions in a company with 24,000 employees. I very early excluded modern SharePoint as an opportunity, due to the missing link functionalities. Now, another company with 19,000 employees asks me to design governance for its documentation on SharePoint. The size of the documentation is too large for codes like this: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/1242703/how-to-make-incoming-links-appear-as-a-drop-down-in-sharepoint-wiki.

    At least one global competitor to SharePoint saves all hyperlinks in a distinct table. I know that this is a complex thing. On the other hand, this table contributes to reports of broken links, instant re-coloring of broken links on visited sites and the opportunity to embed incoming links (by labels) anywhere on the sites.

    I experience that superior documentation combined with sophisticated link tools multiply the productivity of consultants with a factor 2-6. The numbers origin from improvements of existing corporate solutions.
