I am not able to get links to work on a tabbed website when using the Teams desktop app - they don't do anything.  They work when using the web version.  Can anyone help with this?

When you display a website within Teams it's wrapped in an iframe from the Teams service, more complicated web apps will have issues with this.

There is an extensive SDK for Tabs in Teams if you want to build out more functionality, see

@Ralph Cacioppo If it is a normal hyperlink I found that you have to hold Shift/Ctrl to follow external links.

Another solution is to use window.open() in javascript to open links directly.
