How to open text links in new tab?

  • When I click on highlighted links withright mouse button - I see context menu
    -open in new tab
    -open in new window
    (may be it's not exact words - I have russian Opera, and I couldn't switch it to English interface. Its another problem btw, I run opera as administartor, but it doesnt save ui language after restart, always uses russian)
    When there is some url in text like in context menu there is only one option, and it opens link in that pages, and delete everything I have. So I need to copy it, open another tab, paste and go and then come back to first page. I need to do this very often in my job. Can you please make it open in new tab? Or may be there is extension who did it? Or other browser?

  • Middle click the link and it will open in a new tab in the background.

  • He's not talking about a link - though there may be an extension to convert text URLs to links. On actual links, middle-click or Ctrl(+Shift)+click would do it, but they don't work with the menu.

    Either look for some "linkify" extension to convert text to links, or something to add items to the menu. Never used either, so I can't suggest anything.

    Hi @i100min, for that purpose you can try the "Open in (background) tab" extension - after you install it, go to the Options page, and untick the checkbox on the left of "Open [in current tab]", and tick the checkbox on the left of "Open in new tab", and then click on the "Save" button.
