I have created a list in which there is a hyperlink column.

I need the URL to open in a new tab when clicked.

Please let me know if there is any setting in SharePoint 2013 to perform this action. Or is there any script that I can add to this page using content editor.

I found few scripts, but does not seem to work.

Please advice.

you should edit the code for the hlink and add

target="blanck"inside it

Hi Alex,

From your description, you want to open a hyperlink in a new tab.

Assuming it is the AllItems.aspx page, you can add the following code into the page:

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
$(function () {
	$(">tbody tr td a").attr("target", "_blank");

Best Regards,
