How to Make a clicked link Open in A New Active Tab?
gator5000e last edited by gator5000e
When I click on a link in a page I am viewing, the link opens a new tab but the tab isn't active. I then have to click on the new created tab to view it. Is there an option to have the new tab be the active upfront tab after clicking on a link?
I searched but couldn't find anything. Thanks for any thoughts.

install "right click opens link in new tab", options middleclick - foreground, rightclick - do nothing. might want "tab active" as well. i don't honest remember you need "download chrome extension" to be able to use them.

Actually there are 3 native ways,
a) you use a mouse gesture on the link (drag the link slightly down with the right mouse button and release)
b) Hold down Ctrl+Shift then left click the link
c) Drag the link with the mouse to the tab bar (does not always work)

middle-click? (Just wanted to make sure)

Thanks for the suggestions. I've looked at some of the extensions and really don't see anything that is on point. And this is harder than it should be, I am not sure why Opera can't have an option in the settings to make the new tab active immediately when clicking on a link. Oh well. Firefox and Edge open a new active tab when clicking on a link. Seems to be pretty basic. I really like Opera but it seems like this is a shortcomng on its part.
