Force Chrome to open Storyline links in a new window

Sep 22, 2020

Hello everyone.

We have Storyline 360 courses which have links in them that are set to launch in a new window.  It works fine in Internet Explorer, but Chrome always opens in a new tab. We need these links to open in a new window.

Everything I've read so far says that this is a limitation of Chrome, and there isn't really a setting in the browser to launch links in a new window.

Anyone have any thoughts on this issue?
