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.
Thanks.

    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.
