Hi @venkat

As per our documentation LinksConfluence doesn't provide an option to configure a link to open in a new window or tab. Users can choose to right click / CTRL+click the link if they want to open it in a particular way. 

A free option is to get Link Opener for Confluence plugin in Atlassian Marketplace. 

Hope this answer can help you! 

Kind Regards,

Hopefully Atlassian can do something about this as this is really very helpful to direct users from one page to another. It will really help us a lot.

I just proposed the plugin to our Confluence staff, I think it's ok to let a user decide wether or not he or she wants to open internal and/or external links in a new window.
