"Chrome browser question."


  

          

Is there a tweak or extension or tool that will enable site links displayed in the bookmarks bar to be opened in a new tab or a new window with a single left mouse click instead of having to right click site links and select either a new tab or a new window from the context menu that opens?

Jim.

No problem. Just hold down the CTRL key while left-clicking your Bookmark.

Thanks for replying. I am aware of holding Ctrl and left clicking. But it's not an acceptable solution for me if there is a tweak or extension that can enable single left clicking on the link.

I have an ancient program that adds links to IE's Command Bar that, in appearance, look similar to Chrome's bookmarks bar's links but which, by default open the links in a new window with a single left click. If it's possible, this, or in a new tab, would be what I am looking for.

Jim.

That's an interesting idea. So far, I haven't found a way to set it to do an automatic Ctrl + left click. But I'll keep at it and post back if I figure it out.

In the meantime, it dawned on me (Duh!) to simply click the + sign to open a new tab and then click the desired link. For me it's easier to make two quick left clicks than either using the keyboard or the context menu.

Jim.

Isn't it easier just to click the middle mouse button?

It would be if it worked but it doesn't with my MS mouse.

Do you have your mouse set to a specific middle button action? If you do, please post it and I will try it.

Jim.

No, it just worked out of the box (HP X900 Mouse).
Does the wheel actually click when you press it?

Yes, it clicks. Prior to trying various settings today, I had it set
to Enter when clicked - which worked perfectly.

Jim.
