    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.

    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.

    Hi, thanks for replying and I'm sure you guys will come up with something great!!

    I currently do not have anything in mind, except that I hope you guys come up with a cool design of promoted links for the Modern graphical user interface.

    Thanks!
