    I use my scroll button to open the links in a new tab in Chrome. I like Picture to People. Thanks!

    I wonder if you can set the above mentioned site’ hyperlinks when clicked to be opened in a new tab?! Would it be to difficult?
    For instance when click on “Gmail Attachments To Drive” or whatever else will be opened in a new tab?!

      try clicking your mouse scroll wheel/button when poting on the link. this will open links in anew tab.

      I asked you if you can make a hyperlink to open in a new tab, didn’t? I!
      Don’t remember asking you testing my computer knowledge, do I?!
      Say it that you can’t and is all right but do no try to play smart since this wasn’t the case here! It could have been an opportunity of being nice but you’ve missed it!

      you asked us to change the default functionality of a web links. that would frustrate more users because it WILL force links for everyone to open in a new tab. Therefore, I recommended a workaround for you.
