    Default Make link open a new tab??

    Is there any way in Chrome (3.0.190.4) to automatically open a new tab each time a bookmark is clicked? I know there is some sort of utility that can be used to open a new tab by pressing the CapsLock key but that must be a resident keyboard "stuffer" program because it also is in effect when Chrome is not running. Thats not what I have in mind; I could just as easily click the "+" sign to open a new tab.

    Thanks for any info or tips.

    I already posted this several times.. but here it is :

    CTRL + CLICK will open in a new tab ( not focused )
    CTRL + SHIFT + CLICK will open ( focused )

    You can also use these hotkeys on any link. Home, back, next, refresh works too.

    Middle mouse button click will also work...

    but not on a Mac of course... (only 1 button on the mouse)

    Thanks. That worked - for unfocused new tab - once I remapped my MS mouse wheel to middle-click. Too bad that my mouse software will not take Ctrl-Shift as a keyboard mapping but it will only take things like Ctrl-A, Ctrl-B, etc..

    Apparently, shift+middle mouse click opens a focused new tab.
    Thanks for the tip though guys, I didn't know this either. ^^;

    Default Make a BUTTON open in a new tab?

    Hi,

    I cannot stress how IMPORTANT this is. I really hope I get a prompt response.

    How can I open an actual button in a new tab? The button submits something and does a tally type thing, in a new page, so how do I have it do that in a new tab?

    Thanks
