Hi, I'm wanting to make links go to a new tab not a new window is this possible.
Click with the cmd button
Yes, you can do that very easy. Click on Safari menu on top or your borwser. When the window opens click the first icone (tab) and at the bottom of that window select the option open links from Applications "in a new tab in the current window." That is all you have to do good luck!
That doesn't work it still opens tab in a new window and I don't want to press cmd every time to put in a new tab. Isn't there any plug-in that can do this.
i think that only works with OS X applications, not third-party apps, but i'm not positive. this might be the cause of the OPs problem, though.
I think you need to install either SafariStand or SAFT. Google them.
I've got SafariStand installed but I don't know how to make links stay in tabs.
I don't use it, but it's widely reported to have that feature... It may have a funny name, since it's written in Japlish.
It might say something about "_blank" opening in new tabs.
Go to Safari -> Preferences -> General -> Open links from applications -> in a new tab in current window.
Or go to Sarari -> Preferences -> Tabs -> enable all 3.
I don't think you read what the OP is asking for at all....
What the OP is asking for is analogous to the feature in Firefox that "forces" links that open in a new window to open in new tabs in the current window. There is no analogous built-in option in Safari. But SAFT and SafariStand should both be able to add this feature. This has been discussed a thousand times on MR....
Click 'SafariStand' settings at the bottom of the stand option at the top of the safari menubar, click this box...
I read it, and that is how I have mine set. It opens all links in a new tab.
I have Saft installed and it does exactly what the OP wants. I always had the same problem of some links opening a new window when I wanted everything to be a new link. Give Saft a try, it works great for me.
I don't think so... if you're getting that in Safari, you're either doing something beyond what you listed or you are not clicking on the kind of link the OP is talking about.
Go to this page, for instance:
Single left click on the "Macscoop..." link at the beginning of the first post.
In Safari, with the options you described and no plugins or extensions installed, this results in the document being opened in a new window.
