    Yes, please make it an option to open all types of links in a new tab in all webparts. For example, I have created a list where users are supposed to open and read through several documents. When I use the list webpart, the documents open in the same tab making it hard for the user to navigate back to the list.

    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…

    NB! Please make it an option to open a new page or document in a new tab in lists and web parts. Even though it is against web standard, it sometimes is necessary and creates a better user experience. I am working on a project were it is important that documents open in a new tab, but unfortunately they open in the same tab when user click an URL in the list web part.
