Link Target
This selection determines how the link will open. Frames are rarely used anymore, so most people only ever need New Window and Same Window.

  • New Window (_blank). Opens the link in a new browser window.
  • Same Window (_self). Opens the link in the same browser window, replacing the page currently being viewed.
  • Topmost Window (_top). For pages that use frames, this opens the link within the inner frame.
  • Parent Window (_parent). For pages that use frames, this opens the link using the entire window, not within a frame.

Protocol
The characters at the beginning of most website addresses. The majority of URLS begin with http://. https:// denotes a secure, encrypted website. ftp:// sites are used to transfer files between computers.
