Sometimes you may need to make a navigation menu link open in a new window. The problem is you do not see an option to do that when adding menu items.
Actually, the option is hidden to remove clutter from the screen. You will need to click on the screen options button at the top right corner of the screen and check the ‘link target’ option.
Next, you need to scroll down to the menu item that you want to open in a new window. Click on the menu item to expand it, and you will see the option to open link in a new tab.
Don’t forget to click on the save menu button to store your changes.
