SharePoint modern experience top naviation opens all links in new tabs


  • I've created a new Page on a team site using the modern experience and the top bar looks good but all links gets opened in a new tab/window but using the old design they get opened in the current tab.

    Is there any fix for this?

  • Hi anddah,

    How did you create the page in SharePoint online site? Could you please share screenshot of the top bar which you click in the page?

    Per my test in my SharePoint online with modern experience, I click the top bar in the modern experience page, the links will be opened in the current tab not a new tab.

    Then you could force the url to be opened in the current tab in IE. For more detailed information, refer to the article below.

    If the issue does not have much effect, you could ignore it.

    Best regards,
