    This is the link information.
  2. On that pop-up, click the pencil / 'Edit' button
    This let's you change the link, handy, but not what we want right now.
  3. Click on the gear / 'Link options' button
    Now we're in the nitty-gritty of the link!
  4. Check the 'Open link in a new tab' box
    This will make sure the link opens in a new window.
  5. Click on 'Update' to save your changes.
    Update the page/post and have a look at it.  Make sure the link works the way it should.
