    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.

    Please fix! It is annoying having links from the same enviroment (SharePoint Tenant) randomly open in new windows. Link to document library open in new window. Link to list open in new window. Any link in the Quick Links Web Part Open in new window. At the least provide an option to choose to "Open in New Window" we do this all the time when using the classic model and display templates. Default open in same window, unless specific otherwise. Let the user decide the standards they need. Do not force a standard especially when it is random.
