Forcing Joomla 2.5 menu items to open in a new window
When creating new menu items in Joomla 2.5, the default behavior is for those links to open in the same window. Joomla 2.5 includes an option to open menu item links in a new window / tab, and in this tutorial we'll show you how to set this up.
To force Joomla 2.5 menu items to open in a new tab:
- Log into your Joomla 2.5 admin
- In the top menu, hover over Menus and then then click on the menu group which contains the menu item you want to edit
- In the list of menu items, click the menu item that you want to edit
- Next to Target Window, choose one of the following options:
After making your change, click Save in the top right menu.

Thanks for the question! Been searching around for this answer for quite a bit. Not sure if this will do the trick. You were not the only one to ask, but there were very few answers for the question. Here' s one way that may work - though it appears to be for another version: Joomla Forum- Menu Link window size.
Hopefully those links will guide you toward a solution that will work for you. Please let us know if you require any further assistance.
