Bookmarklet to recover right-click and "open in new tab" for SharePoint 2010

April 23rd, 2012 | Categories: JavaScript, SharePoint 2010

One of the things that I was using in SharePoint 2007 and is GONE in SharePoint 2010 is the ability to open a link in top navigation or in quick launch in another tab. This still works in SharePoint 2010 if you’re not using Internet Explorer. But in IE when right clicking a link in quick launch or in top nav, you will find "Open in new tab" or "Open in new window" missing.

The bookmarklet is available in my JavaScripts Library.
