[Solved]Automatically Switch To New Tab

  • There are a few other threads in the forums regarding this but they are years old. I sure hope things have changed.
    Hey everyone. Just switched over from Firefox (been a user for decades) to try out Opera and I'm in the process of setting it up to behave like FF. One thing I haven't been able to find so far is making a new tab active when creating it whether that be via CTRL+click on a link or right click on a link and select Open link in new tab.
    Makes logical sense that if you are opening something, you want to see it so why not go to it automatically and save me from having to find the new tab and click on it. Very annoying. At the bare minimum, it should be an option but can't seem to locate it.
    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

  • @Olen Ctrl + Shift + Click seems to do it.

  • @leocg Thanks!!!
