Resources open in new Tab with LMS; Course in a new window

This seems to be a Chrome issue, but I'm going to ask anyway.  Our LMS launches, we register, and the course starts in a new window.  When the user accesses a resource, it opens as a new tab with the LMS and hides the course. The user sometimes thinks they need to start the course again, not realizing that it is simply minimized -- causing frustration of course.  How can I assure that a resource is opened in a new window -- not tab.  IE11 works fine so this is why I think it is Chrome, but ... I'm going to ask anyway!

Greetings, Lynn. Great question, and you're right!

There isn't a setting in Storyline to ensure resources open in a new window rather than a new tab, as this is based on the specific browser's configuration. 

I found this related discussion with a JavaScript solution that can hopefully help. The community may have other approaches to this, so I'll open the floor to them!
