What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Whenever I add a link to an answer it doesn't gives me any option to open it in new tab ("target='_blank'") all links open in the same tab.. or may be I don't know the way to do this.

SO, is there anyway to do this??

Many Thanks.

You simply don't do that. Only user should decide where to open the link.

What about the users who don't know you can do that, and to whom replacing the entire current page is more disruptive than opening a second tab>? – Aaron Bertrand Sep 15 '15 at 20:34
    
@AaronBertrand, that would be a different problem that require a different solution, but NOT a solution of automatically forcing new tab on every user regardless if he wants it or not. – Oleg V. Volkov Sep 15 '15 at 23:42
    
That's not what I suggested. Only suggested that open in the same tab is not optimal in all scenarios either. – Aaron Bertrand Sep 16 '15 at 0:06
    
For example, optional markdown. I don't think "all new tab all the time" was what this question was about, either; but rather being able to do it in specific scenarios. – Aaron Bertrand Sep 16 '15 at 0:18
