    Default How to open main page on new page

    If I type the URL to my store in a browser, the browser loads the main page over the page previously displayed. How do I get my store to open on a new page in the user's browser? Same question for loading any store page from it's URL from typing or a bookmark.
    TIA!

    Check out the information at https://www.w3schools.com/tags/att_a_target.asp and https://www.w3schools.com/html/html_filepaths.asp

    Also, if your site it fully secure (https://), you will need to make sure that any external links are done correctly.

    That's up to how you use your browser. Press CTRL+T to open a new blank tab, and then type the URL you want to go to or click the bookmark link you want to open.
    If you search Google for "how do I switch between browser tabs" you'll see lots of tutorials about working with multiple tabs.

    This behavior is not under your control. The user decides whether your page opens in a new tab or the current tab.
