Set Up The Auto External Links App
Your store's external links should always open in a new browser tab to create a smooth user experience.
The downside effect would be significant. Imagine adding a Facebook page or Instagram profile link in your store's footer: you don't want your visitors to click on that link and Facebook or Instagram to open in the same tab, "over" your store.
Shopify makes it easy to choose when adding a new link, whether it should open in the same tab or a new one. But it's even easier to forget doing this every time, so we're providing you with a simple tool to open all external links in a new tab automatically.
Just enable it in one click, and you're set.
