How to open "link to a document" in new tab RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have recently migrated to SharePoint online. We have a document library that we have set to display as classic experience. The library has an item set up as "link to a document". When user clicks on it, the link opens in the same tab. But we want it to open in a new tab. How do I do that? Under the new experience it does open in a new tab but we want to use the classic experience (view).

  • Hi J-Bal,

    There is a similar thread here, and i followed the suggestion then it works well on SPO.

    $(document).ready(function () {
        $("a[onclick*='return DispEx'][target!='_blank']")
            .attr("target", "_blank")

    Best Regards,
