Open Browser and Custom Searches in a New Window


Recommended Posts

Hi,

As specified in the title, I would prefer if Alfred:

 

Open Browser and Custom Searches in a New Window by Default

 

So whenever Alfred opens a browser window it would be a new tab in a new window rather than a new tab in the current window. It seems to make more sense to me. And there are plenty of people creating workflows to achieve this for specific sites in a repetitive and inelegant way. Any other thoughts from the community?

 

If not by default, then there could at least be an option to enable this.

 

Looking forward to some feedback.

I believe that this is going to be controlled by the application/browser and not by Alfred. Alfred simply uses the open keyword (same that would be used from the command line or terminal) to open URLs in your default browser. I can't remember what all browsers support this but I know that some browsers actually support setting how the OS will handle opening new URLs by default (where it opens in a new window or a new tab) I would check your browser settings and see what they have been set to
