Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

If Chrome is already open, it opens new sites (e.g. from Windows shortcuts, application shortcuts, or from the Run dialog) in new tabs of the existing instance.

I'd prefer to open new sites in a separate window (a new instance of Chrome).

I don't see that in the options - is it possible?

I believe the previous answer holds true still, although there are solutions for your problem today.

One solution: Hold down shift when clicking links (also works with shift+enter). https://support.google.com/chromebook/answer/183101?hl=en

Another solution:
