    SO like a week ago whenever I use Google images, then click on an image and clic ''view image'' it keeps opening in a new tab which is really ****ing irritating

    a) how did I even manage to make it do this
    b) how do i get it back as I hate having to close tabs repeatedly

    i checked my google search settings but it only mentions about new browser windows which isn't the problem.

    thx for the help

    Hi

    1. On the Google home page, at the bottom click on Settings in the bottom right corner and then “Search Settings
    2. Under "where results open", make sure the box that says “Open each selected result in a new browser window” is unchecked.

    If every link you click on still opens as a new window or tab and this is not a setting you previously set:

    Try going into Chrome Menu and then Settings, then scroll down and click on “Show advanced settings...” and again scroll all the way to bottom and click the Reset Settings button. This will not reset your bookmarks.
