Thanks for respond. None of those options worked. The problem is 50/50, some hyperlinks it works find, others hyperlinks it doesn’t.

  • Correct clicking selection is disabled (greyed out).

  • Holding CTRL doesn’t work either. Information technology still opens it in a new browser window

  • The problem seems to depend on the hyperlink.

  • I ran the powershell choice on a test PC and zippo inverse.

  • I know there is a way to fix this considering my PC (contour) works just fine. I have a few other staff that work fine. Merely someday I hire a new person or they log into the PC profile of their own, it reverts back to opening up links in a new window.

Chrome has a simple option that says (open links in a new tab), is there no simple setting option in edge? My company I’m contracted with requires us to use edge.

Hello JD. I’yard Greg, 10 years awarded Windows MVP, specializing in Installation, Performance, Troubleshooting and Activation, here to help you lot.

The default behavior of Edge is to open a new tab, not a new Window. Check if someone has set Border to open up a new WIndow instead of tab:



If it’southward still not working with the default tab behavior and then I’ll give yous everything possible to fix Border so something should work:

one) If possible back upward your Favorites first in Border Hub (three dots summit right of browser) > Favorites > Manage Favorites > Consign to file: https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/143983-how-…

If you lot can’t open Edge simply another browser will open up, and so go into it’s Settings to endeavour to “Import from another Browser” your Edge Favorites and so they are at least backed up.

ii) You tin reset new Edge in Edge Settings > Reset Settings.

3) If you can’t open Edge or if the Edge Reset doesn’t work then go into Windows Settings > Apps > Apps & Features > Microsoft Border > Modify > Repair.

4) If those don’t help and then endeavor reinstalling Edge over itself from official download hither: https://world wide web.microsoft.com/en-usa/border

five) If none of those repairs help try the additional repairs here:
