Open in New Tab

I want to tell you about a handy little option you have when you are browsing the internet.  This is true for most browsers - Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari, etc.  You have the option to open something in a new tab, or a new window, so that you don't have to leave the page you are on in order to click on the new link.  All you have to do is right click on the link you wish to open and choose "Open Link in New Tab" or "Open Link in New Window".

This picture comes from Chrome, but the specific wording may vary depending on your browser.  Sometimes it just says, "Open in New Tab" instead of including the word "Link".

This comes in handy no matter where you are browsing, but I find this option especially helpful when I run a Google search.  I can scroll through my results and click "Open Link in New Tab" for any of the links I think I might want to see.  Then once I've looked through the list, all the links I am interested in are open in separate tabs across the top of my screen.  I don't have to click the back button and return to my search to look through more results.

Happy browsing!
