Google search engine is a pathway to enter into a vast world of information. When we search on Google, sometimes useful results are buried under so many results, they can be hard to locate.. You may think that a particular result is useful, but upon clicking on it, you find it has nothing to do with what you need. Clicking on the back button of the browser is not a viable solution in such a case, as the user will need to click on back button many times, or just hold the back button and then jump to a specific page. A better solution in this case would be open each result in a new tab. This method is very useful, especially when you’re researching on a particular subject. Later on, when you complete reading it, you can close that tab and continue reading the next tab.

To open each result in a new tab, you can right-click on a link and then select “open in new tab” or you can press ‘Ctrl’ and then click on that result. But here’s an easy way by which you can tell Google to open results in a new tab by default. Just follow this procedure.

Open the search settings page of Google by signing in to your Google account, click on the small down arrow at the upper right corner and then click on “Account”.

Account

From this page, click on “Visit the Search settings page” link.
Search page

(If you have not registered with Google+, then you might not see this search settings link. In such a case, you can access the search settings page directly, or you can click on the gear icon at the top right of the screen, and then click on “search settings”.)

Next, scroll down on this Search Settings page and you’ll see the “Where results open” header,  from here, check mark the box for “Open each selected result in a new browser window.”

Google search

Don’t worry, it will still open search results in a new tab, instead of a new window. Also don’t forget to click on the blue “Save” button from the bottom of the page.

That’s it. Now whenever you click on a search result on Google, it will open in a new tab.
