Google: Open Links from Search in New Window

Posted July 22, 2007 by Rob Rogers in Google

By default, Google opens the links from your search result in the same window. This means that you’ll have to go back to get to the original results, sometimes you’ll even have to redo the query which can be a real pain if you have already weeded through several results. By following this tech-recipe, you will set Google to open the links from the search results page into a new window, keeping the search page intact for you to return to if the link didn’t give you what you were seeking.

1. Go to Google.

2. Next to the right of the textbox, click Preferences.

3. Scroll down to the Results Window section.

4. Check the Open search results in a new browser window checkbox.

5. Click Save Preferences.
