    In order to open a new Favorite in a new tab, it would be much quicker if the
    right-click context menu provided an "Open in New Tab" function. It appears
    that in its present form it is necessary to open the new tab first, then open

    Also, clicking on a link in an e-mail, such as in Outlook, seems always to
    open a new window. The same convenience could be provided here by
    right-clicking the link, and choosing "Open in New Tab"

  2. The Favorites Centre has an 'open in new tab' option on right click.

    In my installation, when I open the Favorites drop-down list, and then
    Right-click over a selection, I get a menu with the following:

    Make Available offline
    Send to >
    Create Shortcut
    Sort by Name

    Where is "open in new tab"??

    I found that in order to make the "Open in New Tab" option appear in the
    right click context menu, I had to disable the Google toolbar.

    I would like to see in Internet Options full control of how windows open,
    whether you want new windows, new tabs, or pop up windows. It would be nice
    to set the default for Favorites, or links, or popups, to open where I want
    without using Menu options. Only techies like key sequences of 2 to 5 keys to
    do things. I like to set defaults for one click response.
