SharePoint Top Navigation Link: Open in New Window
There was a requirement is to add a link in intranet portal’s top navigation bar. Provided on clicking the link, it should open in new window, as the site link added was developed in a different platform & environment other than SharePoint.
If publishing feature is enabled, we can just go to: Site Actions >> Site Settings >> Navigation (Under Look and Feel), Add a New link with “Open link in new window” check-box selected. That’s all, We are done with opening top navigation link in new window!
However, On the provided site we don’t have the publishing feature enabled. So, on the site settings page, we saw the “Top link bar” link instead of “Navigation”. Unfortunately, it doesn’t provide us an option to open links in a new window.
