Currently when I click on links in my dashboard, Splunk launch the link in the existing browser window and I lose my dashboard view. What syntax is needed to get Splunk to launch a new window when I click on a link in my dashboard?

1) with clicks on FlashChart modules and SimpleResultsTable modules, you can simply hold down the Ctrl key when you click, and it'll open in a new window. (Command key if you're on a mac)
Unfortunately the SearchLinkLister module (the module that shows blue links) doesnt seem to follow this convention.
2) If you're willing to modify the XML, and it's an advanced XML dashboard you're dealing with, you would go find all the ViewRedirector modules and add this param:
and for each one that you change, the corresponding clicks will all then open in a new window always.
If you're ever curious to see what all the module params are for the splunk version installed on your system, go to:
or more specifically,
