URL Link to open in new window

Jan 30, 2013


I have created a course, which explain how to log on to a memberside.

At the end I placed a 'web object', but this will be opend in the course window.

I would like a LInke at the end of the course which will open a new browser window.

How can I do that?

Thanks for your help

Hi Paula,

This conversation is from over 8 years ago, but the article has been updated since then. 

It looks like you are using Storyline 360, so I've attached the relevant article:

Storyline 360: Working with Hyperlinks

I also took a moment to record a quick 53 second Peek 360 video to demonstrate.

Hi, Andy.

When you hover your mouse over the URL in the trigger wizard, those two icons don't appear for you? Or, when you say the button isn't in your version, do you mean you don't have an insert hyperlink icon? 

You can also right-click your highlighted text and add a Hyperlink through the menu that shows up:

Thanks for sharing information on this topic. Also, it's nice to see something current. Andy, I am seeing the functionality Maria and others are showing. A teammate asked me about an hour ago if this was a deliberate action, or if it was by a learner's browser setting. When I hover over the URL it give me those two icons.

Hi, Andy.

Thank you for clarifying!

You won't see the icon when you first set up the trigger:

You have to save it, then open it again to edit it:

If your experience is different than above, let's try this:

  • Are you able to do a short Peek 360 recording showing what you see?
  • Can you attempt a quick repair of Storyline 360? Here are the steps
