Email Link --> Open New Tab

I have three email links in my website, and want each of them, when clicked, to open in a new tab. However, I can’t find any way to set it so that a new tab opens.

Any tips on how to make this happen?

Here is my site Read-Only: LINK
(how to share your site Read-Only link)

mailto links don’t open windows or tabs, they open the native email client on the device.

They can open new tabs if your email client is browser based, there is no setting to make this in a new tab apparently.

Did you find a solution to this?

The browser controls how mailto links are handled.

If you really wanted to, you could;

  • Change your “open email in a new tab” link to a standard link
  • Make it e.g. /email? with a target of _blank ( open in new tab )
  • Create an /email page in Webflow
  • Add custom script to pull the email querystring param
  • Immediately do a redirect to mailto:<whatever email>
  • Display a nice message

That message is important because depending on the browser configuration, some people will see a new tab created and then their mail reader will open. Others will see the new tab created and then replaced with an online email program like GMail.

You can just add in a Custom attribute to the link in Settings with Name = target and Value = _blank, like this:
