How to disable link preview thumbnail pop-ups?

Johann E_ June 23, 2023

Hello, the pop-ups are disturbing at work because they cover other links that I want to open in new tab. Please provide an (general!) option in my settings to disable the pop ups.

  • Before it was one click on middle mouse button to open links in new tabs.
  • Now it is two clicks and I have to wait for the pop-ups.

Hi Johann,

Thanks for reaching out!

I'm afraid it's not possible to turn off link previews if links are inline links. You can read more about smart links here:

With that said, it may be helpful to change your links to display as regular URLs rather than inline. You can do this at – just ensure you've selected 'Display URL'.

With that said, you should be able to open the link in a new tab by pressing Control / Command and clicking on the link.

Let me know how that goes,
