I have several lists (task list, issue list, custom lists) with a lookup column to a different list. The lookup column displays as a hyper link to the other list item. However, when clicked it opens in a modal dialog, I would like for it to open in a full window instead.

Is there any way to do this?

  • Go to the source list settings > advanced settings and turn Off open form in dialog option. Let me know if it works for you. Commented Nov 21, 2022 at 17:32

Try this:

  1. Go to lookup source/parent list (from where you have added lookup column)
  2. Then go to List settings > Advanced settings
  3. Set below option to "No"
  4. Click OK to save the changes

  • Sorry, should have noted in my question that this setting is set to "No" in both the List being linked to and the List that has the lookup column.

  • You may be able to create a custom hyperlink using JSLink/Client side rendering (CSR) in classic experience for lookup column. Commented Nov 23, 2022 at 5:10
