links open in new window and not tab (win 10)

  • It seems links in enail etc open in a new opera window, and not a new tab. Is this expected behaviour or is there some setting that can fix it?

  • I assume you mean email. Which email? Outlook? Opera mail? Something else?

  • outlook, but a restart of opera fixes it. strange, but after sometime email links open in a new window.

  • Apparently the moderators want me to resurrect this thread instead of opening my own. I have the same issue.

    Restarting Opera does not help; this has been happening for about a week and it got annoying pretty quickly, especially since the new windows open in the background behind Outlook (2016) when I click a link in my email. Please advise me on what to do to fix this.

    Using Opera 35.0.2066.37 on Windows 10 Home 64-bit

  • Bump.

  • It's probably an issue with Windows 10 Outlook. Check your settings to see if there's an option to open links in the foreground.

  • Hmm, nothing in Outlook's settings that I can see about this. I looked in Default Apps in Windows 10's Settings menu, and everything seems to be set correctly there too. If other people aren't getting this problem with this version of Opera, I think maybe it's something wrong in my Windows registry, so I'm going to try reinstalling Opera soon to see if that helps.

    Edit: just reinstalled Opera and it's still having this problem.

  • Bump.
