Opening Links in a New Browser Window

One of the anoying things about Sharepoint is that all links open in the same window, and sometimes we forget and close the window . . . well there are a few solutions to enable a link to open in a new window.

This tip is about clicking in a hyperlink in a list web part and open it in a new window: 

Using the Frontpage 2003 we can make changes to particular webparts, therefore:

  1. Open the Web page containing the List View in FrontPage 2003
  2. In Design View right-click the List View Web Part and select Covert to XSLT Data View from the context menu
  3. Switch to Split View and locate the generated XSLT code …
  4. Change the code 

Another way to achieve this is by changing the RenderPattern element in the FLDTYPES.xml file, but this changes the behavior for all Lists throughout SharePoint.
