# Target

Sets the target attribute of the badge and specifies which window or tab to open the link into.

Retype

[!badge target="blank" text="Retype"](https://retype.com/)

If no target is configured, the link will open in the current tab.

The target can be set to any value, although blank is common and will open the link in a new tab. Retype will automatically transform the value blank into _blank which is the actual value required by the browser to indicate that a hyperlink should be opened in a new tab.

There are several other values that may be prefixed with an _ character, including self, parent, and top. The following table demonstrates some common scenarios and naming convention used by Retype to normalize the target values.

Config target value Runtime target value
blank _blank
parent _parent
top _top
self _self
