How Do I Open Links in the Background
[b][size=4]This is just an example of how to ask a question in these forums[/size][/b] How do I open links in a background tab?
There are several methods
- Ctrl + Click on the link
- Middle-click on the link
- Right-click on the link, and select Open in background tab
- GestureDown, GestureUp, i.e.Hold down the right mouse button, and drag the mouse cursor straight down, then up again
If a question has been answered, to mark the thread as resolved, edit the first post and select the Green Tick icon instead of the Question Mark icon.
With the latest build it is now possible to edit mouse gestures.
I deleted the "New Tab/Open Link in New Tab" gesture (GestureDown/GestureUp) then assigned GestureDown to "Clone Tab in Background/Open link in Background Tab." Then I added the "New Tab/Open Link in new tab" back again and assigned GestureDown, GestureRight to it.
I prefer this to the default as it is convenient if you want to open several links from the same tab for reading later. If I want to read something at once, I just click the link to open it, then use back (GestureLeft) to close it when I am done.
