Windows 10: Open link as new window in Edge

    Open link as new window in Edge


    In IE, there was a setting to open links (e.g., ones selected by shift-clicking, or ones with a target attribute in the anchor tag) into a new window instead of a new tab. I can't find a way to do this in Edge - in general, the number of user-adjustable settings seems to be MUCH smaller in Edge. Is there a way?

    Use Ctrl+N to open a new window RobBroekhuis, or right click the link to open in a new window

    The easiest and quickest way, (for mouse), is to wheel-click the link or bookmark to open in a new tab then just drag the tab and drop in the middle of nowhere.

    Edge is still full of glitches though. One thing I found is if you close the 'parent' window, all other windows will close as well!

    I made a quick vid showing two ways to open them to a new window

    Thanks for the replies. So if I understand correctly, there is no way to just tell Edge to open them to new windows as a default? I can do the other methods, but they all involve some more work - trivial, yes, but I do it a lot, so I would like it to happen automatically.

    I agree, I hope they add that option soon.

There seems no way to click a link in Edge and have it open in a new open tab. It either opens in the existing tab or creates a new closed tab, depending on which mouse button you use.
