Open a link to a page without opening a new tab

I have a Space with multiple pages. I want the first page to act as a start page, containing images that link to specific pages within the same Space. When I click a link, it opens in a new tab. Is it possible to let it open in the same tab?

Hi @Rienk Douma , 

Welcome to the community! 
Link opening behaviour has always been a bit of a mystery for Confluence cloud. 

In the old editor, links were always opened in the same tab, and is was a pain to change that behaviour. 
In the new editor, I think the default behaviour for text-based URL's is to open in the new tab, and for URL's behind images, to open in a new tab. 

Could you create a workaround with a textual link underneath the image? I think that would be the quickest solution.

Hi Tessa,

Thank you for your swift reply! I tested your workaround and that indeed works. It's not ideal but if there isn't another option at the moment we can work with it. It would be great though to have a bit more options when creating links.
