Open link in a new or the same tab/window

Home / Did You Know / Open link in a new or the same tab/window
Did you know you can determine whether the link you opened with a Symbaloo tile opens in a new browser tab or in the same tab?  Find out here how you can edit these settings.

Click on the profile icon in the top right corner and select Preferences from the drop-down menu.

Check out the first setting ‘Symbaloo should open links in’ and select ‘a new tab’ if you want a new tab to open or ‘the current tab’ if you want the link to be opened in the same tab/window. Make sure to click the Save settings button to save your changes.

Note: If you have selected ‘a new tab’ and your browser is opening a new window, but you much rather want a new tab to open, check your browser settings/preferences for the setting that determines how a link is opened.
