Can external links open a new tab in my browser instead of new window?

Hello,

When I add external links they always open in a new window (with no toolbar). Could they open instead in a new tab in my browser? That would make it a lot more user friendly. 

Thanks in advance,

How are you accessing Miro as when I click on a URL in a text box using Miro via Google Chrome on my Windows PC, it does open the web page in a new tab. The same happens when I click on the link accessing the board from the desktop app.

Hi @Kiron Bondale thanks for the quick reply. Now that you mentioned it, I asked another friend and he has the same experience with links on Miro. I am also using chrome, but on Mac. It must be something with my Chrome settings, although so far it happens only with Miro, which is strange..

Thanks for your reply. Do you know if there is any support for Deep/Dynamic links? From the Miro Desktop App or Miro App I would like to add a link to a board pointing to another board and when this link is clicked it would open a new tab and not direct me to the browser. IMHO, Miro should have support Deep Links when using the App.

Using this feature/approach is enough and solves the problem. The link will the correctly open a new tab within Miro App if pointing to another board.
