You will have the option to be able to choose to open in the same tab or in a new tab for your site, hub, and global navigation items.

The new Open in a new tab option gives you greater flexibility in how your users can interact with your sites and allows you to better control how they navigate.

Note: The new open in new tab experience will not work on the footer control when initially available. This will become available at a later date.

What you need to do to prepare

You do not need to do anything to prepare. Your navigation links will continue to open as they do normally today, until you make a change to their behavior using the new control.
