Disable the WebBrowser control and open the link in a new instance of an Internet Explorer window
If the "Open in new Tab" context command is clicked, the link will be open in a new instance of an Internet Explorer window by default. The interface of the DWebBrowserEvents2 event designates an event sink interface so that an application must implement to receive event notifications from a WebBrowser control or from the Windows Internet Explorer application. The event notifications include the NewWindow3 event handler that means the WebBrowser control will open the link in a new instance of an Internet Explorer window. You can handle this event and set the Cancel property of the event argument to TRUE. Therefore, the WebBrowser control will cancel this operation.
Create a new tab to display the link in an application
After setting the Cancel property of the event argument in the NewWindow3 event handler, you can create a new tab which contains a WebBrowser control to display the link.
