Prevent "View Image" from opening in a new tab

Posted

So I have looked this up several times and not found an answer anywhere. And I've just been dealing with the issue, but there has to be a way to turn off this feature, and I want to know where it is.

The situation is this; Let's say I am doing an google search for images. I find an image I like and I click on it. A box opens up giving me 3 options; "Visit Page", "View Image", and "Share". What I would like to do it "View Image" so I click the button and it opens in a new tab. What I would like it to do is open in the same tab. Not open a new one. Does anyone have a solution for this?
