I created sub menus under my menu Earrings. The sub menus are Teardrop, Hoops, Beaded ....

When I click on earrings the page loads in same tab but when you click on Teardrop sub menu a new tab is opened.

How do I get the sub menu click open in the same tab and not a new tab? 

On mobile the sub menu click opens a new window and I dont want that. I would like it to open in same window.

I'm using the Debut theme and have been looking under header.liquid but not sure what to change.

Hi there!

It looks like the child elements of your dropdown menu items

have (specifically <a></a> tags) have target="_blank" attribute.

If you remove them, URLs you clicked will be opened in the same browser tab.

Look into header.liquid or site-nav.liquid.

Hope it helps.
