The first time I clicked on one of the Web Reports on the Software Updates page I was asked which Reporting Server to use for running Reports against and whether I wanted to “Open reports in a new window“. I decided to check the checkbox and now whenever I click on any of the reports it opens them in the Report Viewer rather than within the Admin Console.

How do I configure my Reports NOT to open in a new window?


Not immediately obvious this one but all you need to do is:

1. Right-click the relevant “Site Database (<site_code> – <description>)” item in the root of the Admin console.

2. Select “ReportĀ Options“.

3. Uncheck the “Open reports in a new window” checkbox.

4. Click “OK“.
