    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…

    @SitesProductTeam links in Site Contents - by definition these are not external links - often open in new tabs. A five minute session of exploring the contents of a site can easily result in ten or more open tabs. The undesirability of this should be self evident. You are right in saying there is inconsistently. Sometimes (or maybe some tenants) this happens, other times it doesn't.

    The web part is practically useless without support for recurring events. For most orgs and teams, a majority of the events they need to track are recurring.
