Hi Friends,
The anchor tag is essentially a tag that you can attach to a word or a phrase (exactly like you would a normal internal or external link), except it brings readers down to a different section of the page as opposed to another webpage. You're essentially creating a unique URL within the same page when you use this tag.

just add a target="_blank" attribute to your links (anchor tags). Now when your visitors click that link, it will open in a new window or tab

Anchor tag in HTML is used for linking between two sections or two different web pages or website templates.

To open an url into a new tab in the browser upon a click, we need to add target attribute equal to _blank.

<a href=”#” target=”_blank”></a>
