SharePoint Online: How to have link to document from another library open in a new tab?

vrm 696 Reputation points

In a modern document library, I use New > Link to add a link to a document in another library.
When I click the link, I get a download window.
I want the document to open in a new tab, but will settle for it opening in the parent window.

    Hi @vrm ,
    Did you follow the steps given in this article? I tested it in my environment, when I click on the generated .url file, the document will automatically open in a new tab.
    May I some relevant screenshots?
    Thank you for your understanding and support.
