    100% agree. This is the most annoying thing about Box. Please don't have me click a file, then open it, then go back to Box, click Close, then click the X to go back to box, then click on the new tab to see the file I'm editing. It's absolutely ridiculous!

    Having the same issue. Files do not open in new tabs. Very annoying.

    Press the control button (or command button for Macs) on your keyboard and click on the file or folder you want to open in a new browser tab. Game changer.
