DWQA QuestionsHow can Chrome not automatically switch to a new tab when the new tab is created?

Unfortunately, middle-click, right-click + open a new tab, and Ctrl-click doesn’t always work – if the link also triggers something on the site or the site restricts alternate clicks then; middle, right, and Ctrl-clicks don’t work. 

Rather, use one of the other options to open a background tab. 1) select “open link in new background tab” from the context menu (second choice), 2) use middle-click on the link with your mouse; 3) use Ctrl+leftclick on the link with your mouse, 4) designate a mouse gesture to open a background tab when you perform it over a link.
