When you use target=”_blank” or target=”_new” to open a new window, sometimes depending on the user’s browser setting, it would open a new tab instead. Using the html “target” may not open a new window at the user screen.

To ensure that your user will get a new window, you could add a javascript code and specify a window size. This will ensure that user’s will always get a new window instead of a new tab.

Add this to the link: onclick=”window.open(this.href, ‘mywin’, ‘left=20,top=20,width=700,height=700,toolbar=1,resizable=0’); return false;”
