SharePoint Online file preview page always redirects back to library - chance of custom backlink?

Occasional Visitor

Hey everyone!


In a SharePoint Online modern library you get a preview page with clicking on a PDF file. This is a very cool feature so far. But the moment you click on the X to close this online viewer, you always get back to the original document library.


You were on a custom site with library webpart? > Original document library.

You were on a search result page? > Original document library.


How can I deactivate this - or in other words, how can I define a custom backlink/parent?


I already tried manually changing the ?parent= parameter to the search result page, but this only throws an "UnableToDetermineInitialItem" error.


Any ideas?


Thanks and kind regards!
